PEEFACE. 



The plan adopted in this work is mainly that of Rev. E. F. 
Slafter, in the Slafter Memorial. 

A series of consecutive numbers inins throusfh the volume. 
Where a name appears a second time, as it always will appear 
when it stands at the head of a family, the place where it is given 
is designated b}'' a number in brackets, placed immediately after 
the name. 

To trace a line of descent, seek in the Index the name you wish 
to trace ; against it will stand a number. Turn to this number in 
the body of the work, where you will find the name, and above it 
the names of the parents ; at the right of the name of the father 
will be a number in brackets, to which, if you turn, you will find 
the name, and above it the names of the grandparents ; and so 
continue until the line is traced. 

The numbers in the Indexes always refer to the first appearance 
of the name ; and on turning to that number in the volume, it will 
be seen at a glance where it appears a second time. 

It was my original plan to trace the descendants of Edward 
Spalding in both the male and female lines. But it soon became 
apparent that it would require another volume as large as the 
present one to do this satisfactorily. The increased expense of 
preparing and publishing this additional volume compelled me to 
confine my labors principally to the genealogy of the male lines. 
The marriages of all female descendants, of Edward Spalding 
bearing the family name have been given, also their dates of birth 
and death, so far as they could be ascertained. 

As to the spelling of the name, I have followed the best author- 
ity. Spalding is the uniform mode in Great Britain and on the 
Continent, and generally prevails in this country. Some prefer the 



X PREFACE. 

other forms ; against these there is no law, for both surnames and 
Christian names are now frequently altered at the will and taste of 
those to whom they belong. There is no standard authority in the 
spelling of proper names. 

Mistakes will undoubtedly be found in the volume. But they 
exist, not for want of painstaking efforts to avoid them, but gen- 
erally from imperfect manuscripts and contradictory statements 
sent by members of the same family. Many persons would be 
surprised to see the errors in their own letters, which are frequently 
the result, not of ignorance, but of carelessness. What is worth 
recording at all, is worth recording carefully and correctly. I 
should esteem it a favor, when mistakes are discovered, to have 
the corrections sent to me. 

The Historic, Genealogical Society is now, in an important sense, 
the foster-mother of almost every New-England genealog}^ 1 ac- 
knowledge my indebtedness to its library, and especially to the 
hearty and prompt assistance given me by so many of its members. 
I am under obligations to those who have sent me information, 
and take this opportunity to express to them all my sincere thanks. 
For special information I am indebted to Hon. R. P. Spalding, of 
Cleveland, Ohio ; Dr. Edward Spalding and E. H. Spalding, Esq., 
of Nashua, N.H. ; Miss Elizabeth P. Spalding, of Portsmouth, N.H. ; 
E.H. Somerb3^,Esq., London, Eng. ; Mrs. C. F. Russell, of Towanda, 
Penn. ; Seth Savage, Esq., of Lancaster, N. H. ; Mrs. Susan Ball, 
of Townsend, Mass. ; George Spalding, Esq., of East Woodstock, 
Ct. ; Mrs. Elizabeth Winslow, of Evanston, 111. ; Mrs. M. A. S. 
Palmer, Cambridgepoi't, Mass. ; L. A. Spalding, Esq., Lockport, 
N. Y. ; William A. Spalding, Esq., of Ludlow, Vt. 

I must also add my obligations to Messrs. Alfred Mudge & Sou, 
and to those gentlemen in their employ, whose ready co-operation 
and suggestions have frequently aided me. 

The work has been one of great labor and expense, and is jet 
but partially accomplished. I would suggest the desirableness of 
making a Spalding fund of three or four thousand dollars, to be 
put into the hands of trustees, the interest of which should be ex- 
pended iu the prosecution of investigations and the publication of 
matters relating to the Spalding famil3\ With this aid, a volume

could be issued once in twelve or fifteen years at a price which 
would bring it within the reach of all who might desire it. It is a 
matter of regret, in the publication of this work, that, with all the 
generous contributions of friends, its cost is so great that it will 
practically fail to reach many who might desire to see it. 

With the assistance of such a fund as has been indicated, much 
information could be gathered, which is inaccessible for want of 
means to pay for copies of documents and registers. 

It would also encourage the making and the preserving of 
records in the different branches of the family. The mere asking 
of questions, with the possibility that a family book might be pub- 
lished, has in many instances awakened interest and stimulated 
investigation. Much more would certainly be done, if it were 
known that the means for the publication of a volume were already 
in hand. The family is a very large one, and the representatives 
of it are found in all professions and in all departments of business 
and of industry. There can be no doubt, therefore, that the fresh 
materials for such a volume would be most abundant. 

The certain recurrence of such a record would be a moral stim- 
ulus to all belonging to the family to carry the name forward 
untarnished. 

My correspondence has brought to me many pleasant acquaint- 
ances whom it has never been my privilege to see. Their kindness 
and encouragement are among the cherished memories of the present 
life, and I trust our mutual sympathy in this work will form the 
basis of a higher and nobler friendship in the future.

INTEODUCTION. 



The name Spalding appears quite early in English history. Of 
its deriyation we have no certain knowledge. Some conjecture that 
it arose in connection with the town of Spalding, in Lincolnshire, 
England, which is said to have derived its name from a Spa or 
spring of chalybeate water in the market-place. Spa, as a general 
name for a spring of mineral water, arose, unquestionably, from a 
place of this name in G-ermany. E. "W". Spalding, of St. Louis, 
Missom-i, suggests the following : " The French epaule, Spanish 
espalda, English spall^ all meaning shoulder, seem to have some 
significance, as the whole race, so far as I know, are ph^'sically very 
powerful. The last sj'llable has a meaning, also : ding, to strike ; 
S'pcd-ding, shoulder-striker. In the Middle Ages, when battles were 
fought hand to hand, om- name originated. The two-handed sword 
in one coat-of-arms strengthens the argument." 

The name Spalding as a patronymic is on the Continent as well 
as in Great Britain. 

Johann Joachim Spalding, a celebrated divine, and one of the 
best pulpit orators of Germany, was boi'n Nov. 1, 1714, at Triebsees, 
in Swedish Pomerania, and died March 2, 1804, at the age of ninety 
years. He studied at the university of Rostock, and afterwards at 
Griefswald ; and after various engagements as pastor, settled, in 
1764, at Berlin, as first pastor of St. Nicholas Church, which post he 
filled until 1788. The publication of the lieligious-Edict compelled 
him to retire. His sermons were esteemed very highly for their 
depth both of thought and feeling, and their pure and elegant style, 
and several collections of them have been published. 

George Ludwig Spalding, the philologist, was the second son of 
the preceding, and was born at Barth, in 1762. He studied first at 
a Berlin g^'mnasium, then du'ected b}' Biisching, and afterwai-ds at 
Gottingen and Halle. After travelling through the principal coun- 
tries of Europe, he became tutor to the childi'en of Prince Ferdi- 
nand, and professor at a gymnasium of Berlin. He was M. A., 
Halle, and a member of the Bei'lin Academy of Sciences. In con- 
sequence of the Religious -Edict, he abandoned theology, and 
devoted the rest of his life to philology. He is chiefly remembered 
for his excellent edition of the works of Quintilian in five volumes. 
After spending nineteen years on it, during which time he published 



2 INTRODUCTION. 

only three volumes, he died in 1811, and left his task to be com- 
pleted by other hands. 

The name, so lar as we have any knowledge, first appeared in 
connection with the town in Lincolnshire, England Tliis existed 
before Crowland ; for in Ethelbald's foundation charter of that 
place, part of the bounds of the monastery there are said to extend 
"usque aMlificid Spaldeling." Ethelbald began to reign 716 A.D., 
and was killed 757 A.D. 

But whether the name was introduced by the Anglo-Saxons, or 
was brought over by a colony of Flemish people, or originated in 
that county, it is impossible to determine. 

In the Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 
vol. 4, pp. 138 and 139, published in 1831, we have the following 
sketch of the old Saxon town, Spalding : — 

Spalding, a market town and parish in the wapentake of Elloe, 
parts of Holland, county of Lincoln, 44 miles (S. E. by S.) from 
Lincoln, and 100 (N.) from London, Lat. 52°-51', Long. 0°-02' W., 
containing, according to the last census, 5,207 inhabitants, now 
supposed "to amount to upwards of 6,000. This place is said to 
have derived its name from a Spd or spring of chalybeate water, 
in the market-place ; it is of considerable antiquity, being men- 
tioned at an early period of the Saxon annals as one of the points 
on the boundary line of the estate belonging to Crowland Abbey, 
to which a subordinate cell for a prior and five monks was founded 
here in 1051, by Thorold de Buckenhale ; but at the conquest, on 
the presentation of this manor to Ivo Talbois, Earl of Anglers, a 
nephew of the Conqueror, who built a castle here, the society was 
so harassed by their new neighbor as to be compelled to abandon 
their cell, which, falling into his hands, was given, in 1074, with 
the church of St. Mary and the manor, to the abbey of St. Nicho- 
las at Anglers, whereupon some Benedictine monks were sent 
over, and it became an alien priory to that nionasteiy, being ded- 
icated to St. Mary and St. Nicholas ; it did not share the fate of 
the other alien houses, but was raised to the dignity of an alibey, 
and so continued until the general suppression, when its revenue 
was valued at £878 18s. 3d. The town is situated on the river 
Welland, in a fenny district, but remarkably well drained ; the 
streets are clean and well paved, the houses of neat appearance, 
and the inhabitants are well supplied with water. An Antiquarian 
Society was established here, many years ago, by Mr. Maurice 
Johnson, a native of the town, of which Sir Isaac Newton, Sir 
Hans Sloane, Dr. Stukele^y, and several other distinguished persons, 
were members ; many of the valuable books are still preserved, 
some in the vestry-room of the church, and others in the grammar 
school, as are also some manuscripts, relics of antiquity, and nat- 
ural curiosities ; the room is now used for a permanent subscrip- 
tion librar3^ A literary club has also been recently established. 
The theatre, a small and neat edifice, is open about three weeks in 
the year ; assemblies are occasionally held in commodious rooms in

the town hall. The land in the vicinity is extensively appropriated 
to grazing ; and the fenny tracts have been drained by means of 
steam engines. 

Wool forms a principal article of trade, and some of the manu- 
factm'ing towns of Yorkshire are supplied from this neighborhood. 
Since the river Welland was made navigable to Crowland and 
Stamford, Spalding has acquired a considerable ti'afflc in corn and 
coal ; sloops from fifty to seventy tons burden come up to the cen- 
tre of the town, and by these a regular coasting trade is maintained 
with London, Hull, Lynn, and other places ; there is a quay for 
landing goods, with spacious storehouses for theu' reception. The 
port is a member of the port of Boston. The market on Tuesday 
is the largest in the county for cattle. Fairs are held April 27th, 
June 20th, August 28th, September 25th and December 6th, chiefly 
for live stock. Spalding has been the principal seat of jurisdiction 
for the parts of Holland for many centm'ie^. In the Saxon times 
the courts of law were held by the earls, and, subsequently to the 
Conquest, the priors were invested with judicial authority, and they 
possessed the power of life and death. At present, the quarter 
sessions for these parts are held here, and petty sessions for the 
wapentake every week. Courts of Servers and of requests for the 
recovery of debts not exceeding £5, for the hundred of Elloe ; and 
also courts leet and baron, at which the Steward presides, are held. 
The town hall, situated at the northwest end of the market-place, 
was erected at the expense of Mr. John Hobson ; the lower part is 
let for shops, and the rental given to the poor, according to the 
will of the donor. A new House of Correction for the parts of Hol- 
land was built in 1824 ; it is an airy and commodious edifice, under 
very good regulations. 

The living is a perpetual cm"acy, in the archdeaconry and diocese 
of Lincoln, and in the patronage of certain Trustees, who are seized 
of the rectory, which is of considerable annual value, in trust for 
the incumbent. The church, which is dedicated to St. Mary aud 
St. Nicholas, is principally in the later style of English architecture, 
with a fine tower and crocketed spire ; it was erected in 1284, instead 
of the conventual church then pulled down, and considerable additions 
were made in 1466, amongst which was a very beautiful north porch. 
There are places of worship for Baptists, the Society of Friends, 
Independents, and Wesleyan Methodists. A free grammar school 
was erected in the reign of Elizabeth, and endowed, by the will of 
John Blanch, with eighty-nine acres of land, for the support of a 
master to instruct the children of householders born in the parish ; 
the original endowment has been considerabl}^ augmented by Mr. 
Atkinson ; the trustees are incorporated, and have a common seal. 

Another, called the Petit school, was founded in 1682, bv Thomas 
Willesley, and endowed with nearly sixty acres of land. The Blue- 
coat school, founded by one of the Gamlyn family, is supported by 
a small endowment of land, aided by voluntary contributions. An 
almshouse for the reception of twenty-two poor persons, was 



4 IKTRODUCTION. 

foiuided and endowed, in 1590, by Sir Matthew Gamlyn ; and 
another for eight poor widows, in 1709, by Mrs. Elizabeth Sparke. 
There are also considerable estates vested in trustees, called " Town 
Husbands," for the benelit of the poor. A portion of the abbey 
buildings yet remains, which is partly in ruins. Man}^ relics of 
antiquity have at difierent periods been discovered in the neighbor- 
hood, and others taken out of the river Welland. 

There are many traces, existing in the neighborhood of Spalding, 
of the stupendous works executed by the Komans, in the various 
embankments for keeping out the sea, which still remain as monu- 
ments of their industry and power. In the time of the Saxons, it 
flourished under the Mercian princes, and its particular lords and 
patrons were their kinsmen, some of whom were deputy-governors 
under the king, and had their residence in Spalding. 

There is a Spaldington, a township in the parish of Buhwith, 
Holme-Beacon division of the wapentake of HarthiU, East riding 
of the county of York., 4^ miles (N. by E.) from Howden, contain- 
ing 361 inhabitants. 

There is also a Spaldwicli, a parish in the hundred of Leighten- 
stone, county of Huntingdon, 3| miles (N. E. by N.) from Kimbol- 
ton, containing 332 inhabitants. 

There is also a hamlet called Spalford, in the parish of North 
Clifton, northern division of the wapentake of Newark, county of 
Nottingham, 7 miles (E. by S.) from Tuxford, containing 86 inhab- 
itants. 

The following citations will show that the name Spalding, as a 
patronj'mic, has existed in Great Britain from ver}^ early periods. 

" Henry de Walpol sold lands by deed, sans date, to John de 
Spalding (Burgess of Lenn) in Tyrington and sealed as b}^ his 
deed appears with a Fess between two Chevrons. About 51 Henry 
III." (A. D. 1267). ICollins' Peerage, vol. 5, p. 32.]

(A. D. 1316), Peter de Spalding was lord and presented to the 
Mediety of St. Michael's of Denver, as lord of this manor. 

" John, son of said Peter, was lord in the 13th of Edward III. 
(A. D. 1340) and had 30 messuages in this town, with 500 acres 
of land, 30 of meadow, and in Hilgey, Downham, Fordham, &c."

" Berwick Castle, Sir Pierce Spalding delivered it up to Thomas 
Randall, Earl of Murray, April 2, 1318, in consideration of lands 
given him in Angus, in Scotland. It remained in possession of 
the Scots until 1333." 

\_WaUis' Northcumberland., England, vol. 2, p. 435.]

got Berwike out of the Engllishmennes' handes." 

" Accidit ex tempore, ad malornm cumuhim, quod quidam perfl- 
dus, dictus ' Petrus de Spaldyng ' cui custodia vill?e de Berewico 
commissa, fuerat, Scotis veuderet dictam villam, et intrare permit- 
teret ; quod factum Regem graviter contristavit." 

March 28, 1318. \_lIistoria Anglicana, Thomce Walsingham, 
vol. 1, p. 155.] 

In Haile's Annals of Scotland^ vol. II. p. 97, the following 
account is given : — 

" One Spalding, a citizen of Berwick, having been harshl}'' 
treated bj"- the governor (probably Robert Horsely), resolved to 
revenge himself. He wrote to a Scottish lord (pi'obably Patrick, 
Earl of March) whose relation he had married, and offered, on a 
certain night, to betray the post where he kept guard. The Scot- 
tish lord durst not of himself engage in an enterprise so perilous 
and important ; he therefore communicated this intelligence to the 
king. 

" Troops were assembled under Randolph and Douglas, cautiously 
marched to Berwick, and, assisted by Spalding, scaled the walls, 
and in a few hours were masters of the town." 

Howard's Manor, Tyrington, Norfolk Co., England. "In the 
20th of Edward III. (A.D. 1347), Jokn Aoenelt and Joan his wife, 
held the fourth part of a fee, which Peter, son of John Spalding, 
formerly held ; and the said John and Joan, with Robert de Canston 
and the heirs of Ida, late wife of WiUiam Bataile, held the third 
part of a fee of the Lord Bardolf ; and at the same time John de 
Tilney and his parceners held the twelfth part of a fee of the said 
lord, which John de Fitton formerly held. Peter Spalding sold his 
part or manor (having infranchised several villains), to Sir John 
Howard, the elder." 

[Blomiield's Hist, of the County of Norfolk, England, vol. 9, 
p. 87."] 

There was a William Spaldewic, incumbent of Eltisley, Cam- 
bridgeshire, presented Nov. 10, 1394, resigned 1399.

In Blomfield's History of the County of Norfolk., Town of Brock- 
dish, there is a description of the church. " In 1518 Henry Baken- 
ham, of Brockdish, was buried in the church, as were many of the 
Spaldings, Withes, Howards, Grices, Tendrings, and Lawrences, 
who were all considerable owners and families of distinction in this 
town." 

In a note on the above, there is the following : — 

" Spalding, per fess azure and or, a pale counterchanged, and 
three square buckles of the second. 

" This family was originally of Spalding, in Lincolnshire. In the 
house belonging to the family, I saw a picture of Samuel Spalding, 
town-clerk of Cambridge, in his alderman's gown with a book in 
his hand, Anno 1664, cet. 74. Another of his wife, Anno 1664, cet. 
63 ; her arms, argent an eagle displayed gules. Another of Frances 
their daughter, in her winding sheet ; this child being young, went 
into a garret in a remote part of the house, and the door shutting 
upon it, she was there starved to death, notwithstanding strict 
inquiry had been made after it ; this Samuel was father of Samuel, 
father of Daniel Spalding, Gent, deceased." [Vol. 5, p. 330.] 

In Rymer's Foedera, vol. 14, p. 510, Dominus Thomas Spalding 
is mentioned as Prior. 

In Gough's British Topography, vol. 1, p. 208, Cambridgeshire, 
is the following : — 

'* Samuel Spalding, town-clerk of Cambridge 1610, a good anti- 
quary, being a fair writer and laborious collector, transcribed sev- 
eral folio books of records relating to this town, which were in the 
hands of Mr. Blomfield."

" Samuel Spalding was Maj-or in 1630. Again in 1655 ; and in 
1661, Thomas French was turned out of his office and Samuel 
Spalding put in his stead. The Mayor is annually elected on the 
16th of August and sworn into office on the 29th of September." 

[^Hist. of Cambridgeshire, England, by Edmund Carter, p. 59.] 

In Gough's British Topography — Aberdeenshire is the follow- 
ing : — 

" In the same library [referring to that of King's College] is 
a copy in about 1000 folio pages of Spalding's History of Scotland. 
It begins 1624 and ends 1645. The author was commissary-clerk 
of Aberdeen, and has taken pains to commit to writing, as he has 
received them, such accounts of the public transactions as he could 
obtain in that remote corner. They are greatly misrepresented ; 
but the greater and more valuable part of the book relates to the 
particular occurrences in Aberdeenshire and the neighboring coun- 
ties, which represent in a strong light the fermentations that pre- 
vailed in the minds of their ancestors, and the barbarity of their 
manners. Spalding is a royalist, but speaks with great candor of 
the opposite party, and with particular respect of some covenant- 
ing ministers, whom he extols as good preachers ; but of Mr. 
Andrew Cant, and the Presbyterian clergy in geueral, he loves to 
tell every prejudice that he can. The style is vulgar, but has 
merit. The account of Montrose's expeditions, and of the family 
of Huntley, might furnish matter for national history. The origi- 
nal is in the hands of Lord Forbes. Sir James Reid of Barra had 
another copy," [Vol. 2, p. 645.] 

"Proposals for printing Mr. Spalding's history by subscription 
were dated Aberdeen, Dec. 1, 1765." '[Vol. 2, p. 746.] 

Augustine Spalding graduated at Christ Church, M. A., Mav 
14, 1686. 

Among the subscribers to Philip Morant's History of Essex, 
England, pub. 1768, was the name of Abraham Spalding. 

The following are descriptions of the coats-of-arms of families of

From an old painting in possession of Col. Simeon Spalding [85] ;

We have given these descriptions merely to illustrate the litera- 
ture of the name. How Edward Spalding, of Massachusetts, was 
connected with either fa]nily in Great Britain entitled to bear these 
heraldic devices, we do not know. Further investigations it is 
hoped may throw more light on this point. 

These notes show that the name Spalding was very early intro- 
duced and extensivel}^ used in England and in Scotland But 
whether the families were descended from one common ancestor, it 
is impossible to decide. The spelling of the name is quite uniformly 
the same — Spalding ; and the given names, with the exception of 
one oi' two in the Maryland branch, like Benedict, are common to 
all the families, both in this country and in Great Britain. It is 
also to be noted that in the coats-of-arms the prevailing colors are 
the same, which would indicate a common origin. The introduc- 
tion of n into the name, as Spaulding, is an Americanism, and first 
appears in the wills of some of the children of the emigrant ances- 
tor. As Edward Spalding was among the settlers of Brnintree, it 
might be inferred that he came over in their company. But as to 
the family with which he was connected, or the county in England 
from which he came, nothing definite is known. The general tra- 
dition is that he came from Lincolnshire. 

The following letter is from J. C. Dalton, M. D., of New York 

City : -

Rev. S. J. Spalding.

ding family, or any other information relating to that subject, in my pos- 
session.

SPALDINGS OF GEORGIA. 9 

You say, in one of your letters to my brother, that you particularly 
desire to know the reasons why I put the emigration of the ancestor of 
the Spaldings as early as 1630 to 1633. I find on reference to my manu- 
sci-ipt, that I say " Edward Spalding came to America in the earliest years 
of the Massachusetts Colony, probably between 1630 and 1633." He was 
certainly settled in Braintree in 1640, in which year he became freeman 
of the colony, and in which he lost his first wife, Margaret. I tried 
unsuccessfully to find any satisfactory record of the names of emigrants 
with the vessels in which they came, and the exact dates of their arrival 
at this early period; but it is admitted, I understand, that the great bulk 
of the original Massachusetts colonization came within the few first years, 
especially from 1630 to 1633, so that for a colonist fully established in 
1640 with a wife and three children, the probability is in favor of his hav- 
ing arrived by 1633. I am fully aware, however, that it is nothing more 
than a probability. Most of the subsequent details relating to Edward 
Spalding and his immediate family, I obtained from the Town Records of 
Chelmsford. I think I found something in regard to him, previous to 
1654, in the early Boston Records in the city clerk's office; and I remem- 
ber making a visit to Braintree on his account, which I think was alto- 
gether fruitless, owing either to the incompleteness or inaccessibility of 
the Braintree Records. But it is now six years since I was employed 
in this way, and I do not recollect all the particulars. I was much guided 
and benefited by some hints and advice from Mr. James Savage of Bos- 
ton, author of the "Massachusetts (or New England) Genealogy," in 
regard to the means of tracing connections and identifying persons, in the 
use of old or incomplete town records. 

Yrs. Very Respectfully, 

J. C. D ALTON. 

The Spaldings in America, with the exception of a few that have 
recently emigrated to this country, are all descendants from three 
ancient families. One settled in Massachusetts, another in Mary- 
land, and the third in Georgia. 

The Spaldings of Georgia are descendants from the Ashantilly 
Spaldings, county of Perth, Scotland, and they from Sir Pierce 
Spalding, who surrendered Berwick Castle to the Earl of Murray 
in 1318. 

Charles Spalding, Esq., of Sapelo Island, Ga., very kindly fur- 
nished the pedigree of this family. The emigrant ancestor came to 
this country before the Eevolutionary War, and in that struggle 
espoused the cause of the King. After the close of the war, he 
returned to Georgia, where his descendants still live. These Spal 
dings are highly respectable, and have held important positions of 
influence and of trust in that State. I very much regret that my 
first communication from Charles Spalding, Esq., containing the 
genealogy of this family, was mislaid or lost. 

The following letters furnish the only additional information at 
command : — 

Bruro, McTntosh Co., Georgia, 
March 12, 1871. 
Rev. S. J. Spalding. 

Dear Sir : — Your favor of the 27th ultimo reached me a few days since. 
As regards your request that I Avould duplicate my letter of last year, 
which you have mislaid, I can only reply in substance, as I kept no copy. 
My grandfather, James Spalding, came to America about the year 17G0; 



10 INTRODUCTION. 

be was the only son of Capt. Thomas Spalding, an officer in a Highland 
regiment, who lost his life by di'owniug, wliile serving in HoUaud. 

From my grandfather's Bii)le, I make the following extracts : — 

"Thomas Spalding and Anna Lernionth were married in the city of 
Edinlnirgli about the year 17;U, — and afterwards his widow married JMur- 
doch McLean, of the tamily of McLean of Loch Buy of the island of Mull, 
a captain of the S4th regiment." James Spalding, the sou of Thomas and 
Anna, was married Nov. 5th, 1772, to Margery Mcintosh at the house of 
her father, William Mcintosh, planter, on Sapelo River, Georgia. 

From this marriage was boi'n at Frederica, on the island of St. Simon, 
March L'5, 1774, Thomas Spalding, my father, an only child. Thomas Spal- 
ding married, at the residence of her father, Richard Leake of Belleville, 
Sarah Leake, my mother, — and they had numerous issue, and many of 
their descendants still survive, — but as it is not necessary to your object 
that I should enumerate them all, I will only add that none of the male line 
of James Spahliug remain, except myself, a man advanced in life and 
childless, and my two nephews, Thomas and Bourke Spalding (sons of Ran- 
dolph Spalding, deceased) ; they are now living on Sapelo Island, the for- 
mer recently married. 

From the' above you will see that we are not connected with your family, 
or with that of Maryland, nor do I think we can be traced to any English 
family of our name, as my forefathers were established in Scotland, from a 
very remote period, early in the fourteenth century. 

Very respectfully and truly, 

Your ob't servant, 

CHARLES SPALDING. 

Sunny Side, Macon & Western R. R., 
June 7th, 1870. 
Rev. S. J. Spalding. 

Bear Sir: — Your favor of the 13th of May only reached me yesterday, 
or it should have received an earlier answer. I welcome your correspon- 
dence, as taking us from a disagreeable present, to the past, where, in 
accordance with the instincts of advancing years, I like to linger. 

Your last communication fouud me in an old ruinous house by the sea- 
side, where I sometimes resort, but do not permanently reside ; and I was 
able to answer you promptly, because I keep there my father's Bible, and 
some other relics, under the charge of an old Freedman, himself an heir- 
loom, for he waited in his boyhood on my maternal grandfather. But I 
fear I cannot immediately give you the further information you ask for. as 
regards my brother Randolph Spalding's family, as his widow and her 
sous reside several hundred miles from me, and they have their family 
record with them. I propose, " Deo volente," to spend the next winter on 
the coast, in their neighborhood, and will then, if you wish it, furnish the 
fuller particulars you ask for. 

I notice your request to be allowed to make use of the hurried memoir I 
sent you of my immediate progenitors. I can have no objection to your 
doing so, although I feel that it was very incomplete, and particularly as 
regards my grandfather, James Spalding, whose return to Georgia was not 
mentioned. I should have stated that after the close of the Revolutionary 
war, the Legislature of Georgia made all the amends in their power to this 
ill-used man. They restored such of his property as had not already 
passed into other hands, and voted him some small indemnity for the dam- 
age done him. He returned to Georgia and lived there very much respected, 
but greatly reduced in his circumstances. He died in Savannah, and was 
buried in the vault of his wife's uncle. Gen. Lachlan Mcintosh, of the Rev- 
olutionary army. I have rot the date of his death at hand, but it is 
inscribed on the tablet, and it was towards the close of the last century. 

As you seem uncertain whether your ancestor, Edward Spalding, was of 



SPALDINGS OF MARYLAND. 11 

Scotch or English origin, I will mention a few particulars of the family in 
Scotland, which may not have come to your knowledge. 

"We trace to Andrew Spalding (I think that is the Christian name, but 
have not seen the records for so long, that I may have forgotten), a bur- 
gess of Berwick on Tweed, who admitted Eobert Bruce into that fortress 
during his war with Edward; for this service rendered, he was given the 
lands Ashantilly in Perthshire, which remained with his descendants 
almost to our day. Consult Lord Haile's annals of Scotland, if you can 
get them ; probably the records of the Spalding Club, an antiquarian associ- 
ation in Scotland, might furnish interesting matter; but I live too much 
out of the world to get access to them. I think our name was originally 
Elemish, for the town of Spalding, in England, was settled by a colony of 
Elemings, and history also tells us that, not long before the surrender of 
Berwick to the Bruce, a body of Fltmings had been butchered by Edward 
in Berwick, and the same annalists also tell us that my, and perhaps your, 
ancestor was moved to open the gates to the Scotch, by a sense of wrong 
suffered under Edward. 

I am perhaps repeating to you what you know perfectly well already ; if 
so, excuse me, — if otherwise, I may have opened to you a pleasant field 
of exploration. 

Thanking you for your kind invitation, and reciprocating it, 
I am very respectfully and truly 
Your obt. servt. 

CHARLES SPALDING. 

Griffin, Qeorgia, July 30th, 1870. 
Rev. S. J. Spalding. 

Dear Sir : — Having occasion to write to my brother Randolph Spal- 
ding's widow, I bore in mind your request to be furnished with the full 
records of her family, which she has obligingly furnished me, and which I 
here transcribe. 

Randolph Spalding married, in Russell county, Alabama, Mary Bass, on 
the 7th of December, 1843. Had issue — 1st, Sarah E. Spalding, born on 
the 16th of September, 1844, at The Forest, Mcintosh Co. 2d, Thomas 
Spalding, born on the 16th day of September, 1847, in Russell county, 
Alabama. 3d, Thomas Bourke Spalding, born on Sapelo Island, on the 
23d of February, 1851. When, if ever, you publish any genealogical 
paper, I should be glad to receive a copy. My post-office during the pres- 
ent summer is Griffin, Georgia ; during the winter, Darien. 
I am, dear sir, very respectfully and truly 

Your obt. servt. 

CHARLES SPALDIXG. 

The following letters from the Most Rev. Martin John Spalding., 

D. D., Archbishop of Baltimore,will furnish information in regard 
to the Maryland branch of the Spaldings. 

LouisviLXJE, June 21, 1859. 

E. "W. Spalding, Esq. 

Dear Sir : — Yours of the 30th ult. reached Louisville while I was 
absent, and it could not be attended to sooner. I regret that it is not in 
my power to furnish you with much information, especially in regard to 
the New England branch of our family, of whom I may say I know nothing 
definite. I will give you some information in regard to the Maryland or 
Catholic branch, which is that to which I belong, though even in this my 
sources of information are by no means abundant. In a country where 
ancestry is so little regarded, and where every one is the artificer of his 
own fortune, our acquaintance with our forefathers is limited. 

The ancestor or ancestors of our family came out to Maryland either 
with Lord Baltimore, or very soon afterwards. The family settled orig- 



12 INTRODUCTION. 

inally in St. Mary's county, Md., from which it branched off into Charles 
and the neighboring counties, and afterwards spread into Pennsylvania 
and Virginia. That the family is one of the oldest in Maryland. I infer 
from the fact that my grandfather had an uncle, Thomas Spalding, who, 
I believe, was born in Maryland, and who died more than fifty years ago at 
the advanced age of one hundred and twenty years. The family is still 
very numerous in Maryland; though all my more immediate relatives are 
in Kentucky or the West. For moi'e particulars in regard to the Maryland 
branch, I beg to refer you to Basil R. Spalding, Esq., North Charles Street, 
Baltimore; also to James Spalding, Esq., Richmond, Va. You might also 
probably gain information by conferring with Mr. Davis, of Baltimore, 
author of the " Day-Star of Freedom," a work vindicating the Marjdand 
Pilgrim Fathers, written by Mr. Davis, a Protestant lawyer. 

My grandfather, Benedict Spalding, came with his family to Kentucky, 
in the spring of 1791. He had a large family of twelve children, all of 
whom, except three, are now dead, most of them leaving large families. 
My own father, the oldest son of my grandfather, Richard Spalding, died 
in 1850, leaving fom'teen living children, I being the third son, having 
been born May 23, 1810. I was educated partly in Kentucky and partly in 
Rome, where I remained four years to complete my theological course, 
and where I was ordained priest in 1834. I was consecrated Bishop Coad- 
jutor of Louisville on the 10th of Sept. 1848; and succeeded to the title of 
Bishop of Louisville on the death of my venerable principal, the Rt. Rev. 
Bishop Flaget, Feb. 11, 1850. I have at different times published five 
works, of which I will take pleasure in presenting you copies, should you 
require them, and conclude to go on with your work. 

It is almost needless to add, that all the members of our branch are 
Roman Catholics. They came, no doubt, originally from Spalding, in 
England; and I believe that the original orthography of the name is that 
which we adopt. The family was originally German or Saxon ; and Spal- 
ding is the name of a German philosopher of some standing, but tinctured, 
I believe, — for I never saw his works. — with infidel or rationalistic opin- 
ions. There was also an English Spalding, who was the author of a his- 
tory of English literature, which is often quoted, but, from the account I 
have of it, is not very reliable or unprejudiced. 

From intimations which I have received from some of the older mem- 
bers of the family, I infer that our ancestors came over to America from 
"Wales, to which principality a branch of the family had probably removed 
from the English town of Spalding. This town was originally one of the 
great abbacies, which were suppressed under Henry VIII. or Edward VI. 
See 2d volume of Cobbett's History of the Reformation in England, where 
it is numbered among the suppressed abbacies. 

My relative, Basil R. Spalding, of Baltimore, to whom I referred above, 
has the coat-of-arms of the family, which he obtained many years ago from 
an English Professor of Heraldry. If he has returned from Europe, whither 
he went more than a year ago, he will take pleasure in showing you, or 
allowing you to copy, this curious piece of heraldry; in which the mitre, 
probably that of an abbot, crowns the escutcheon. 

These meagre details contain almost all that I am able to say on the sub- 
ject concerning which you ask information. I shall, however, take great 
pleasure in giving you any further aid or information which you may 
require, and which I may be able to furnish. 

I remain faithfully yours, 

M. J. SPALDING, 

Bishop of Louisville.

SPALDIXGS OF ]\1AEYLAKD. 13 

106 N. Charles Street, Baltdiore, 
Jan. 6, 1871. 
Rev. Samuel J. Spaldeng. 

Lear Sir : — I must commend you for your zeal in making genealogical 
researches in regard to the family of Spaldings ; the more so, as in our 
country and generation, men are so much taken up with current events 
and the present — and, I may add, with themselves — as to forget the past, 
especially their ancestors, proceeding apparently on the trite adage — alas, 
too true ! — " Out of sight, out of mind." 

In addition to what I wrote some years ago to E. "W. Spalding, so far 
as I can recollect what I wrote, I beg to make the following remarks con- 
cerning the Mar3'laud branch of the family. 

1. Itis certain that the Spaldings of Maryland were fully established 
in St. Mary's Co. before the j-ear 1G50; for deeds and other papers of that 
date, in their name, are still found in Leonardtown ; though, if I mistake 
not. an accident of fire destroyed some of the docaraeuts. I incline to 
think that they came some years before this date, probably in the early com- 
mencement of the colony, very shortly after the arrival of the first ship of 
emigrants. 

2. As you very correctly spell your own name, no doubt Spalding is the 
correct orthography; it is that of England, Scotland, and of Germany, 
whence the name originally came into England, probably with the Anglo- 
Saxons, in the fifth or sixth century. A great German writer, though far 
from orthodox, bears the name Spalding, an infidel philosopher. All 
other spellings are simply barbarisms, to be eliminated. 

3. I believe that the head-quarters of the family in England was Lin- 
colnshire, where one of them, at a very early period, founded and gave 
his name to the great Abbey of Spalding, one of the thirteen great ab- 
beys of England spared by Henry VIII., but confiscated under his son 
Edward YI. I think, from my researches and whatever knowledge I may 
have in such matters, that the present town of Spalding grew up around 
and under the fostering influence of this abbey (not priory). Such is the 
origin of many flourishing European towns. The monks made desert 
places smile, and agriculture and population followed them. 

4. In order that you may have some further clew as to the origin and 
relations of your branch of the femily, I will mention to you : 1st, that 
my grandfather, Benedict Spalding, had twelve children to survive and 
raise large families, all except one, who had no children. 2d. His sous were 
named Richard, Thomas, Benedict, Joseph, Lewis, and William; and the 
oldest, my own father, Richard, had twenty-one children, of whom fifteen 
were raised to become men and women. He married Henrietta Han)ilton, 
whose father was Leonard Hamilton, the same who emigrated to Ken- 
tucky with my grandfather in 1790. The names of my brothers were 
Leonard, Richard, Benedict, Clement, William, Joseph, Henry, and 
Thomas. The most cuiTcnt names of the family itself — not borrowed 
from side alliances — are still George, Samuel, Basil, Henry, John, 
Thomas, Richard, Edward, James, etc. 

5. In Kentucky alone, I know of no less than five branches of the fam- 
ily from Maryland, all Catholics, evidently from the same stock, but little 
related ; and as they are all prolific, the number must now be very great 
throughout the West. 

6. I have little doubt that all the Spaldings came originally from Lin- 
colnshire, in England ; and that first the abbey, and then the town of 
Spalding, was their alma mater and nursery. 

These are a few of the many thingss which occur to me. If there be 
anything else in which I can serve you, 

I remain faithfully yrs. 

M. J. SPALDIXG, 

Archbishop of Baltimore. 



FIRST GENERATION. 



1. EDWARD SPALDING. 

He was the first of the family of whom we have any knowledge, 
and came to America in the earliest years of the Massachusetts 
Colony; probably between 1630 and 1633. He first appears in 
Braintree, Mass., where his first wife Margaret and his daughter 
Grace died, and where one of his children, Benjamin, was born. 
The following records from the town of Braintree were returned to 
the recorder in Boston, and are published in the Hist, and Gen. 
Reg., vol. 3, p. 247. 

" Benjamin the Sonne of Edwai'd Spalden, 

his wife, was born 7°, (2°), 1643. 
Grace the daughf of Edwai'd Spalden, 

his wife was bmyed (3°), 1641. 
\ iMargaret the wife of Edward Spalden dyed 1640." 

Edward Spalding was made a Freeman May 13, 1640, from which 
fact we know that he was a member of the established church of the 
Province ; as no person could be made a Freeman, or be entitled to 
any share in the government, or be capable of being chosen a mag- 
istrate, or even of serving on a jury, who was not a member of some 
one of the churches established in the Colony. 

The third mention of Edward Spalding is in the following peti- 
tion made Oct. 1, 1645. \_Colonial Bee, vol. 2, p. 128.]

The name next appears in connection with the settlement of 
Chelmsford, Mass. In Allen's History of Chelmsford, p. 8, we find 
the following statement : — 

" About twenty persons from Woburn and Concord at the last 
session of the General Court in 1652, petitioned for liberty to 
examine a tract of land, ' lying on the other side (west) of Concord 
river.' The Court accepted and granted their request. HaAing by 
a joint committee examined and viewed the aforesaid tract of land, 
and having also found sundry others to the number of thh'ty-nine 
in all, desirous of uniting with them in erecting a new plantation, 
they jointly petitioned the legislature for a gi-ant of land, ' border- 
ing upon the river Men'imack, near to Pawtuckett.' " 

The petition was granted \_Colonial Records, vol. 3, p. 301] 
May 18, 1653, and Capt. Willard of Concord and Capt.Johnson of 
Woburn were appointed to lay out the township. It was about six 
miles square. 

.The town was incorporated May, 1655, and "upon information by 
letter from Esdras Reed, Edward Spalding and William Fletcher, 
inhabitants of said plantation, that the number of inhabitants 
according to the time prefixed in the Court's grant, were there set- 
tled ; at their request the Com-t do grant the name thereof to be 
called Chelmsford." It was named after Chelmsford in England, 
count}^ of Essex, which derived its name from the river Chelmer, 
on which it is situated. \_Allen, pp. 12, 13.] 

The town in the fii'st grant did not extend to the Merrimack 
River, but, May 3, 1656, on petition of the inhabitants, the north- 
east boundary was extended to it. Among the signers of this 
petition was Edward Spalding. 

In this enlargement was some of the best land in the town, and 
a portion co..taining 214 acres, was fenced in 1669, and called the 
"ISTew Field." The names of the proprietors are given {Allen, p. 
169), and among these we find Edward Spalding, Sen., Edward 
Spalding, Jun., and John Spalding. 

In 1686, the land lying west of Concord river and south of the 
Merrimack, neai- Pawtucket Falls, called " Wamesit," was sold by 
the Indians to Jonathan Tyng and Maj. Thomas Hinchman. Mr. 
Tyng conveyed his right in the Wamesit purchase, excepting one

forty-sixth part, to Maj. Hinchman, for £50, who sold the whole 
tract to forty-four persons, reserving one share to himself. These 
forty-six joint proprietors built a wall on the south side, extending 
from Merrimack River to Concord River, and for some years used 
the laud as a common pasture for their cattle. It was annexed to 
Chelmsford, 1726. [Allen, p. 27.] 

The first named among these proprietors is Edward Spalding, 
who was the son of the elder Edward. We also find among them 
John Spalding, John Spalding, Jun., Joseph Spalding, Benjamin 
Spalding, and Andrew Spalding, the five sons and one grandson of 
the elder Spalding. This territory is now within the most densely 
settled part of the city of Lowell. 

There is a tradition (which is given by Allen, in his history of 
Chelmsford, pp. 16, 17) that Edward Spalding removed to Wenham, 
Mass., and was one of the Wenham company which removed to 
Chelmsford ; but I can find no trace of his being there, upon any 
records of that town. He removed to Chelmsford, Mass., at, or 
immediately after, the first settlement of that towu, in 1653. His 
name does not appear in the list of original grantees, but at the first 
town meeting held Nov. 22, 1654, he was chosen one of the Select- 
men. The record is as follows : — 

" The 22d, the 9. month: 1654. At a meeting then at William 
Fletcher's Hous, there was chosen to officiate in ordering the Public 
Affairs of the Place by the Consent of the Major part of the Town 
for this present year ensuing : are as followeth : — Ezdras Reed : 
Edward Spalding : William Fletcher : Isaac Learned : Simeon 
Thompson : William Underwood : Thomas Adams :" 

He was also chosen Selectman in 1656, 1660, and 1661. Under 
date of Feb. 4, 1661, is recorded the division of land granted him 
by the Town, amounting to 28 acres, and consisting of 12 acres on 
Stony Brook, 10 acres at Little Tadmuck, and 6 acres on Merri- 
mack Plain. In 1665 he was appointed one of a " Committee for 
the laying out the Meadow granted to the several Inhabitants 
according to the Town Order." In 1663 he was " the Surveyor of 
the Highways." In 1666, he was chosen with three others " Sur- 
veyor for the Newfield," a tract of land lying north of Stony Brook, 
then first opened for pasturage, afterward when settled as a village, 
called " IS ewfield " and subsequently " North Chelmsford." Edward 
Spalding was himself one of the Proprietors of the " Newfield," as 
recorded in the Town Records, March 12, 1667 ; his proportion 
being 6 acres. 

The attention of the first settlers was early given to the culture 
of apple-trees, and special mention is made of the orchard of Edward 
Spalding, in 1664. 

From the settlement of the Spaldings in Chelmsford, Mass.. 
there went out, about 1700, a large emigration to Plainfield, Conii. 
Tlie following facts transcribed from the records of Plainfield, 
Conn., may be found in the Hist, and Gen. Beg., vol. 15, p. 53 : — 



FIRST OEXERATIOX. ' 17 

" Plfiinfield, Conn., was granted to Gov. John Winthrop of New 
London, about 1655, settled from Massjachusetts, and incorporated 
1699 ; and contained, Dec. 2-4, 1702, the following freeholders, 
residing on the east side of the Quinebaug River." Among the 
thirtj^-four named are John Spalding [lO], Joseph Spaldeu [6], 
Edward Spalden [12], and Benjamin Spalden [5]. 

" Oct. 10, 1706, the General Court of Connecticut, in answer to a 
petition, gave a more ample confirmation to niaeteen of the above 
proprietors, and to the following new proprietors." Among the 
nineteen mentioned, are the four Spaldings above named. 

This Connecticut colony consisted of two of the sons of Edward 
Senior, Benjamin, and Joseph, and seven grandsons. It is probable 
also that William, the son of Andrew, went to Connecticut. 

A large emigration also went from Chelmsford, at a later period, 
to Ludlow and Cavendish, Vt. It was said that it was safe to 
address any one in either of these towns as Spalding, since the 
persons bearing this name constituted a lai'ge proportion of the 
inhabitants. 

The same restless spirit which moved the Spaldings to emigrate 
from Chelmsford to Connecticut, continued in force in their descen- 
dants, and led to settlements in Plainfield and Cornish, N. H., 
Moretown, Middletown, Sharon, and Panton, Vt., and Bradford 
County, Penn. ; and now there is not a State or Territor3', north of 
Mason and Dixon's Line, in which the descendants of Edward 
Spalding may not be found. 

As a race, they are possessed of great physical vigor, and, for 
the most part, are tillers of the soil. There are, however, many 
successful and wealthy men of business among them. About fifty 
have 2:raduated at ditferent colleges, aud about fortv have graduated 
at the different schools of law, medicine, science, and theology. The 
practice of medicine has been the leading preference, next to this 
the ministry, and then the law. 

It will be seen from the rolls of the soldiers, that the family has 
been represented in the army, in every war in which the country 
has been engaged. The returns are necessarily very incomplete, 
but they indicate the patriotism of the family, and it must be borue 
in mind that we have given the names only of the Spaldings. Had 
the descendants of the female lines been given, the number on these 
rolls would have been doubled. 

The children of his wife Margaret, were .John, b. about 1633 ; 

Edward, born about 1635; and Grace, b. The latter was 

buried (3^*. 1641) May, 1641. His wife Margaret died Aug. 1640. 

Of his wife Rachel, named in his will, there were Benjamin, b. 
April 7, 1643 ; .Joseph, b. Oct. 25, 1646 ; Dinah, b. March 14, 
1649 ; Andrew, b. Xov. 19, 1652. 

He died Feb. 26, 1670. His will, dated Feb. 13, 1667, in which 
his sons Benjamin and Joseph ai-e not mentioned, made his wife 
Rachel executrix. But she died soon after him, and on probate ot

the will, April 5, 1070, ad mini strut ion was given to John and 
Edward. The reason, nndoubtedly, why his sons Benjamin and 
Joseph were not mentioned in the will, was because he had already 
given them tlieir portions, which thej'' had invested in lands in 
Plainfield and Killiugly, Conn. 

The following are copies of the will of Edward Spalding, and the 
inventory of his estate : —

In the Town Records, under date of Nov. 16, 1655, " John Spalding 
is granted a piece of upland, two acres more or less lying betwixt 
his Hous Lott & the Lott of Samuel Richardson." Also, under

the Swamp granted to him that lyes between his Lott and John 
Shepley's Lott, provided he leave a highway to the S'd Swamp for

SECOND GENERATION. 23 

Benjainiu is not mentioned in the will of his father, as he had 
already received his portion. He purchased a large tract of laud 
in the northerly part of Canterbur}*, NFindham County, Conn., now 
called Brookh-n. His famil}^ homestead was transmitted to his 
son Edward, and in process of time to Edward's son Ebenezer. 

The children of Benjamin and Olive were as follows : — 

27. Sarah, b. Jan. 4, ]G69; m. John Miriam. 

28. Edward [117], b. June 18, 1672. 

29. Benjamin [128], b. July 6, 1G85. 

30. Elizabeth, b. ; ra. Ephraim Wheeler. 

31. Mary, b. ; m. Isaac Morgan. 

32. Joseph^ [6] (Edwardi), b. Oct. 25, 1646, — this is the date 
given on the Chelmsford record ; d. April 3, 1740, ie. 96, in Plaiu- 
field, Conn. This date is given on the Plainfield records with this 
addition : " if he had lived to Aug. next, 97," If the Plainfield 
record is correct, he was born in August, 1743. But this was the 
year of the birth of Benjamin, as given by the Braintree record, and 
also put upon the Chelmsford record. He m. Mere}' Jewell, Dec. 
9, 1670. She d. Aug. 17, 1728, at Plainfield, Conn., in the 76th 
year of her age. In the Middlesex Records, p. 196, Hist, and Gen. 
Library, Boston, she is called Mar^^ and it is m}^ impression that 
Mary, and not Mercy, is the true name. For in vol. 17, p. 187, 
office of Register of Deeds, Middlesex Co., Mr. Joseph Spalding 
and Mary his wife, in consideration of " 100 pounds in good and 
lawful bills of public credit," convey to Massachusetts Commission- 
ers their home lot, etc., 135 acres. This was done Feb. 2, 1714. 
In vol. 17, p. 182, of the same office, Joseph Spalding, carpenter, 
of Plainfield, New London Co., Conn., conve3's to his son Joseph, 
wheelwright, of Chelmsfoi-d, Ms., certain lands on condition he 
relinquishes all claim to land or lands in Plainfield, Conn. This 
is also signed b}^ Joseph and Mary Spaldiag. Two sons of JoSeph, 
Nathaniel and Thomas, emigrated to Plainfield, Conn., to which 
place Joseph himself removed, but at what time we cannot deter- 
mine.

191. William^ [51] (Andrew^, Edwardi), b. Aug. 3, 1688, in 
Chelmsford, Ms. 

There is no account of the death of this William, and no men- 
tion made of him in the will of his father. As the records of the 
family of Deacon Andrew are quite full and minute, we infer that 
William lived to grow up, and followed his uncles and cousins into 
Connecticut, and received his portion of his father's estate when he 
left home. We have no definite knowledge of him or of his wife. 
He is the first William among the early Spaldings From a com- 
parison of names and dates, we are confident he had a son Elijah.

265. Jacob4 [68] (Edward^, John^, Edward^), b. May 14,

He emigrated in 1715 with the first settlers to the South Par- 
ish, Killingly, Conn. The following adventure is given in Barber's 
Mtstorical. Collections of Conntcticnt, as occurring in 1720: 
" Jacob one day purchased of an Indian a deer skin, for which he 
paid him a teno)' bill The latter being intoxicated, soon forgot that 
he received it, and asked for the money a second time. Jacob of 
course paid no attention to such an unwarrantable demand, and the 
Indian went away muttering revenge. The next da}"^ while shing- 
ling a barn, Jacob saw him returning with two companions. He 
leaped from the roof, met them, and was again asked to pay the 
price of the deer skin. He refused to comply, till one of the com- 
pany, who appeared to be the Sachem of his tribe, said he had come 
to see ' fair play,' and avowed it to be honorable for two Indians 
to contend with one white man. Jacob therefore plucking up cour- 
age laid them both on the ground and gave them a ' sound 
drubbing.' The one who was looking on said, ' Poor Dogs, Poor 
Dogs ! me hope he kill you both.' The next day Jacob saw them 
coming again, and the one who supposed himself cheated was in the 
act of loading his rifle. Thrusting his hand into his pocket to find 
the ball, he drew out the identical bill which he had received two 
days before. Seeing Jacob coming to meet him he said, * Me now 
believe Jacob you paidraede tenor bill.' Jacob then turned to the one 
who had come to see fair play and asked what shall we do with him ? 
' Tie him to de tree and whip him,' was the reply. This was done 
bj'' the Indians themselves. The poor fellow after this humiliating 
treatment, became dejected, fled his tribe, & was never heard of 
afterwards. Such was the principle of honor among the Indians." 

My father, says John Spalding [8195], since my recollection, cut 
down the walnut to which the Indian was tied which had grown to 
be a large tree.

38 THE SPALDING MEMORIAL. 

269. Philip'' [69] (EdwarcP, John^, EdwarcP), b. March 6,

the last figure of the date is illegible; d. May 2, 1752 ; ra. Ann 
Cleveland, daughter of Isaac and Elizabeth Cleveland, Aug. 
10, 1721. We give below the names of their children as they 
appear upon the Plainfield (Conn ) Records. Two others, Agnes 
and Dorcas, are mentioned by Rev. V. Spalding. 

270. Andrew, b. April 28, 1722; baptizedJuly 15, 1722; d. June 1, 1796,

280. Eunis, b. March 10, 1743. 

281. Joseph^ [73] (EdwaixF, John2, Edward^), b. Sept. 3, 1718, 

in Plainfield, Conn. ; m. Mehitable ; they resided in Killingly, 

Conn., where their children were born. Whether they removed 
from Killingly, or remianed and died there, we do not know. As 
there is an entire silence in the records in regard to this family, it 
is my impression that they removed from town. 

282. Aholiab, b. Sept. 20, 1743. 

283. Rachel, b. Aug. 6, 1747. 

284. Saihuel4 j-75] (SamueF, John^, Edward^), b. June 4, 1699. 
Of this Samuel it is only known that he went with his father's 

family, in 1706, from Chelmsford, Ms., to Canterbury, Conn., and 
that in 1726 he shared in the division of his father's property, and 
received as the eldest son, £156 17.s. 6fZ, of which £28 6.s. 4d. was 
in personal estate. The indications are that he went to the north- 
western part of Connecticut. Of his wife and children we kuow 
nothing, except that he had a son Uriah. There may have been 
others, but we have found no traces of them. 

In 1731 a religious society was " taken out of .Pomfret, Canter- 
bury, & Mortlake, & commonly known as Mortlake," now Brook- 
lyn, Conn. In April, 1733, it was voted to build a church. In 
August it was voted " that the meeting-house shall stand between

311. Col. Simeon* [85] (Joseph^ John^, Edward'). He was 
the youngest son of Joseph Spalding, and was born in Chelms- 
ford, Aug. 4, 1713. His father, at that time, was living in his 
homestead house, since demolished, situated a little over a mile 
west of the village. After the death of his father in 1728, the 
homestead property was divided by a Board of Commissioners, 
among the widow and children ; Simeon's part being his portion 
of the house and outbuildings and fifty-six acres of land, — val- 
ued altogether at £161 5s. lOc^. In February, 1736, he purchased 
of Nathan Kendall ten acres of land in Chelmsford, lying on the 
county road, half a mile west of the village, upon which he after- 
wards built the homestead house occupied by himself during the 
remainder of his life, and by his son Noah Spalding after him, 
At the same time he purchased thirteen acres of meadow and wood- 



40 THE SPALDING MEMORIAL. 

land Ij'ing in the neighborhood. In 1737 he purchased eight acres, 
also \y'nig in the immediate vicinity of the above. In 1738 he pur- 
chased of his brother, John Spalding, nineteen acres on the south 
bank of the Merrimack River. In 1748, ten acres of meadow and 
upland ; in 1749, fift3'-one acres ; in 1751, two acres of orchard ; in 
]7"8, ten acres in the " Wamesit Purchase" ; and, in 1767, eighteen 
acres of woodland. 

He was chosen Town Treasurer in 175.5, 1756, and 1757; and 
Selectman for the years 1761 and 1762. March 18, 1755, he was 
commissioned cornet of the first troop of horse in the Second Reg- 
iment of the Provincial Militia. He early took an active part in 
public affairs during the American Revolution. 

In 1770 he was chosen Representative of the town " at a Great 
and General Court or assembly appointed to be convened, held and 
kept for his Majesty's Service at Harvard College in Cambridge 
upon Wednesday the thirteenth da}^ of May for the ensuing year." 

In 1773, while he was still acting as Representative, a meeting of 
the freeholders was convened " to know the Sentiments of the Town 
respecting the many grievances we at present labor under, partic- 
ularly the extraordinary Stipend of the Judge of the Superiour 
Court, appointed from home, and more particularly to consider a 
letter and bill of rights from the Town of Boston," — when the fol- 
lowing instructions were unanimously adopted : — 

" Jany. 21 : 1773. To Mr. Simeon Spalding, Representative of 
the Town of Chelmsford in the General Court of this Province. 

" Sir : As the present aspect of the Times is Dark and Difficult 
we do not doubt but you will cheerfully know the Sentiments and 
receive the assistance of those you represent. The matters that 
may now come under your Cognizance are of great Importance, 
The highest Wisdom, therefore. Prudence and Discretion is evi- 
dently necessary. We would earnestly caution you, and your own 
good Sense will See the propriety of it, by no means to consent to 
any /{ash Passionate Plan of action, which will not only Sully the 
Dignity, but finally prove the utter Destruction of the Cause we 
pretend to support. Such Behaviour no private person can jus- 
tify. Sfates should despise it. The Stipend annexed to the office 
of the Judge of the Superiour Court is complained of as a griev- 
ance, but will it not be proper at least to inquire whether this is 
not in a great measure owins; to some defect in ourselves : whether 
the Provision formerly made by us was not miserably deficient, 
and utterly unworthy the highest Court we boast of and the Dig- 
nity of the Province itself. As to the removal of grievances, we 
do not doubt your own Wisdom and the Wisdom of your Brethren 
will invent some suitable Mode of Redress. We hope those little 
animosities and those Refieclions which involve persons not tilings 
and which have been too frequently used, may be utterly banished. 
We hope every Determination will be founded in the nature of a 
free State : and that therefore every Privilege annexed to each 
part may be religiously Preserved. Of consequence you will be 



FOURTH GENERATION. 41 

careful, not to trample on Majesty, while jom are firmly but 
Decently pleading the liberties of the subject. Sir, we wish you 
that wisdom which is from above, and we pray God that your 
Conduct in this Important Crisis may be such as the coolest Re- 
flection will ever after Justify." \_Town Records, Book I. p. 147.] 

He was re-elected Representative to the General Court in May, 
1773, May, 1774, and September, 1774. Immediately after the last 
election, the Town adopted the following letter of instructions : — 

" As we have now chosen you to Represent us in the Great and 
General Court now to be holden at Salem on Wednesday the fifth 
day of October next ensuing, — we do hereby Instruct you that in 
all your Doings as a Member of the House of Representatives, you 
adhere firmly to the Charter of this Province granted b}"^ their 
Majesties K. William and Q. Mary, and that you do no act which 
can possibly be construed into an acknowledgement of the validity 
of an act of the British Parliament for altering the government of 
the Massachusetts Bay ; — more especially that you acknowledge 
the honorable Board of * Councillors elected by the Geneial Court 
at their Sessions in May last, as the only Rightfull and Constitu- 
tional Council of this Province ; and as we have reason to believe 
that a Conscientious Discharge of your Duty will produce your 
Dissolution as a House of Representatives, we do hereby Impower 
and Instruct you to join with the Members who may be sent from 
the other towns in the Province, and to meet with them at a time to 
be agreed on, in a General Provincial Congress, to act upon such 
matters as may come before you in such a manner as shall appear 
to you most conducive to the true Interest of this Town and Prov- 
ince and most likely to preserve*the Liberties of all America," 

[Toivn Records, Book II. p. 233.] 

In Sept. 1775, he was appointed Justice of the Peace by the Pro- 
vincial Council; and in Feb. 1776, he was Commissioned Colonel 
of the Seventh Regiment of the Provincial Militia. This commis- 
sion was also given by the Council, there being no Governor at that 
time. 

In 1776 he was elected Chairman of a " Committee of Corre- 
spondence, Inspection, and Safet}^" chosen by the town. This 
Committee consisted in all of sixteen members. 

He was re-elected to the General Court in May 1775, and May 
1776. 

Immediately after the last election, it was " Vo'ed — that if it 
should be the pleasure of the honorable Continental Congress to 
declare an Independent State with Great Britain, that said Town 
will stand by them at the expense of Life and fortunes." 

Col. Spalding continued a member of the General Court until 



* The Parliament had this year passed an Act making the Councillors of 
the Province, who were previously elected by the General Court, appointees 
of the Crown. 



42 THE SPALDING MEMORIAL. 

1778.- In that year the " Articles of Confederation and Perpetual 
Union between the United States " having been submitted by the 
General Congress to the Legislatures of the States, the Town voted 
(Feb. 26) not to give special instructions to their IJepresentative, 
but " leave the matter discretionary' with him, to act as he may 
think will be most advantageous to this and the other States rela- 
tive to that matter." 

In May, 1778, he was chosen one of a committee " to adjust all 
past Services done in the war by the inhabitants of the Town since 
March, 1777." 

In 1779 he was chosen Delegate to the " Convention for framing 
a Constitution of Government for the State of Massachusetts Bay," 
which continued its sessions from Sept. 1, 1779, to June 16, 1780. 

In March, 1781, he was commissioned Justice of the Peace by 
Gov. Hancock

not only this province but all the English colonies on this con- 
tinent are thrown into the utmost confusion & perplexity ; the 
Stamp act as we appiehended, not only lays an unconstitutional 
but also an unsupportable tax upon us, & deprives us we humbly 
conceive, of those rights, & privileges to which we are entitled as 
free-born Subjects of Great Britain by the royal charter. "Where- 
fore we think it our duty & interest at this critical conjuncture 
of our public affairs, to direct you, Sir, our representative to be so 
far from countenancing the execution of the aforesaid Stamp act, 
that you use jonr best endeavors, that such measures may be 
taken & such remonstrances made to the King & Parliament, as may 
obtain a speedy repeal of the aforesaid act ; & a removal of the 
burden upon trade. We also desire you to exert your influence to 
use the public monies with frugality & to the promotion of the 
interests of the people at large."

she d. Dec. 20, 1795; they resided in Chelmsford, and all their 
children were born in that town. Jan. 11, 1773, at a town meeting 
called " to know the sentiments of the people, relative to certain 
grievances under which the Colony is laboring, particularly the 
extraordinary stipends of the Judges of the Superior Court ap- 
pointed from home ; also to consider a bill of rights and a letter 
from the town of Boston, a Committee was raised to report upon 
this subject." This committee consisted of David Spalding, Jon- 
athan W. Austin, Esqs., Capt. Oliver Barron, Samuel Perham, and 
Benjamin Walker. At an adjourned ilieeting of the town they 
reported as follows : — 

" We are fully of opinion that the inhabitants of this province 
are justly entitled to all the privileges of Englishmen & to all 
those rights inseparable from them as members of a free commu- 
nity. We are sensible that some of these rights are endangered. 
In such unhappy circumstances, the only question that can arise is 
what method is most suitable to obtain redress. Whatever doubts 
may arise about the particular mode, of this we are confident, that 
all rash, passionate procedures are unjustifiable, in so delicate a 
crisis. When a community thinks its rights eudangered, they 
should alwaj^s weigh consequences, & be very cautious, lest they 
run into a step that may be attended with the most deplorable 
eflTects. ' The cause of liberty,' says a fine writer, ' is a cause of 
too much dignity to be settled by turbulence and tumult. When 



54 THE SPALDING JIEMORIAL. 

the passions of a people are inflamed, reason is too oiten silenced ; 
and they soon Ibrget the cause, in which they originally embarked. 
"Whereas the patriot on true principles always endeavors to keep 
those principles in view. Conscious that he is a Member of Com- 
munity, he will endeavour to come up to all the obligations result- 
ing therefrom, & keep every part thereof entire. Therefore while 
he coolly and firmly pleads his own right, he will not forget that 
of his Sovereign ; but will be always Sensible that loyalty to the 
Sovereign & regard to the liberties of the Subject are ver3^ con- 
sistent things.' We are full & clear in these Sentiments & hope 
to regulate our conduct by them. We at present labor under 
grievances. We heartily concur with our brethren in Boston, that 
it is high time these grievances were redressed. But we think the 
General Court, who represent the province the only proper body to 
perform this task. We are therefore of opinion that We can do 
nothing consistent with that wisdom, which should govern a free 
people ; but prepare the following instructions to our representa- 
tive." [^Sketch of Col. Simeon Spaldivg.'] 

At a meeting of the freeholders. May 30, 1774, a committee of 
correspondence was appointed, consisting of nine persons. Of 
these. David Spalding and Simeon Spalding were two. Such 
committees were chosen in all the tow^ns of the province for the 
more ready diffusion of information. The same year, 1774, an effort 
was made to arrest the growing iniquity of the community ; and an 
article was inserted in the town warrant, "to see if the town will 
empower Suitable persons to take Such measures as they shall think 
proper to punish & discourage vice & profaneness, &, call to an 
account idle, disorderly persons, who waste their time & Substance 
in public houses at unlawful gaming, horse-racing & excessive 
drinking, fi'olicking & Sabbath-breaking " 

Of the five Selectmen that year, David Spalding and Zebulon Spal- 
ding were two. Upon the foregoing article, '^ the Selectmen and 
fifteen others were empowered to devise and execute such measures 
as they may think proper for promoting a reformation among per- 
sons of the above description." Of the committee of fifteen, Simeon 
Spalding was one. The Selectmen and Committee reported the 
adoption of the following measures. " That the Company of these 
dissolute persons be shunned ; & that people leave off dealing 
with them as far as is consistent with good reason & justice, not 
entertaining them in their houses by night or by day ; but manifest- 
ing a dislike to their conduct, & bearing testimony against their 
vicious practices, look upon them as disturbers of the peace &, 
good order of Society ; that the Committee converse with such per- 
sons, & use their endeavors to reform them ; & that those Con- 
tinuing in such practices, be put out by the Committee to some 
honest & hiwful employment ; & finally that the town will aid, 
assist & support said Committee in proceeding with such offenders 
accordingly." This report of the committee was unanimously

accepted, and the measures it prescribed were found effectual to the 
desired reform. [^Allen's Hist, of Chelmsford, pp. 63-64.]

Dyer Spalding, the seventh child of .Jonathan Spalding and 
Judah Billings, his wife, was a friend and neighbor of General 
Israel Putnam, who was a native of Pomfret, the town adjoining 
Plainfleld. 

During the French and Indian War, from 1755 to 1760, when he 
was from twenty-three to twenty-eight years old, he was with Gen. 
Putnam, being one of Putnam's Rangers. His commission as Cap- 
tain Avas given by King George II. In after j'ears, this commission 
became a plaything for his grandchildren, who destroyed it. He 
was in the battle of Bloody Brook. He has marched sixty miles in 



FIFTH GENERATION. 65 

one day ; the compass which was his guide through the forest is 
still in the possession of the family. Once when out scouting in 
Connecticut, being short of provisions, a sheep was taken from a 
flock, dressed, and a quarter carried to General Putnam. " Spal- 
ding, Spalding," said the General, who lisped, "put it all out of 
sight before daylight." 

Dudley Chase obtained a grant from Gov. Bowdoin of a town- 
ship of land on Connecticut River, and called it Cornish, in honor 
of Cornwall in England, where his great-great-grandfather, Aquila 
Chase, was born in 1618. He emigrated to America, and settled in 
Newbury, Massachusetts. 

Dyer Spalding was one of the first three settlers in Cornish, 1766. 
No settlements then existed north of Charlestown, called Fort 
Number Four, and no other fort was between this and Canada. 
The whole country was covered by an entire forest of the largest and 
tallest trees. These tln-ee men went to the Mast Camp, opposite to 
where Windsor, Vermont, now is, and sixteen miles north of Fort 
Number Four. Officers were appointed by the crown to select all 
trees suitable for his majesty's navy, and to mark them with the 
broad arrow. This Mast Camp was one station of these officers. 
They had marked one tree on the land Dyer Spalding bought, but 
his majesty never got it. 

Mr. Spalding was particularly skilful in the management of a 
boat or an Indian canoe. On one occasion, when he went in his 
canoe to Fort Number Four for provisions, he found the wife of 
Dudley Chase, who had been left, with her seven children, in the 
Fort for shelter, and security from the Indians. She urged Mr. 
Spalding to take herself and the children in the canoe to Cornish, 
and fiuall}^ prevailed upon him to do so. Arriving near the Mast 
Camp, he made fast the canoe among the willows, went in search of 
Mr. Chase, and asked him what he supposed there was for him in 
the canoe. Not being able to guess, Mr. Spalding told him to 
come and see. Leading the way to the place of concealment, he 
then showed the astonished man his wife and children in the canoe. 
" Have you come to starve with us ? Have j^ou come to die here 
before your time ? We have no house to shelter you ; you will per- 
ish before we can erect one ! " exclaimed the husband ; but the wife 
replied, " Cheer up, cheer up ; I have come to help you." The 
woods rang with shouts at the arrival of the first white woman and 
the first family on the banks of Connecticut River north of Number 
Four. Trees were quickly felled and peeled, and clean bark, in 
large sheets, was spread for a floor ; other sheets were raised for 
walls, or laid on cross pieces for a roof. In less than three hours 
the house was finished, and a cheerful fire was burning in it. 

Having cleared the land and planted the crop for the following 
season, on the approach of cold weather Mr. Spalding returned to 
Connecticut to pass the winter. 

In Plainfield, Connecticut, on the eleventh of March, 1767, Dyer 
Spalding was married to Elizabeth Parkhui'st, daughter of Timothy 
5 



66 THE SPALDING MEMORIAL. 

Pnrkluirst and Elizabeth Cady, liis wife ; she was born in Plain- 
field, Connecticut, July 7, 1734. Then, taking his wife with him, 
he went back to Cornish to remain permanentl}^ Their journey 
was made on horseback, and, from Number Four, they came by 
marked trees. The bride " almost broke her neck," she said, " try- 
ing to look np to the tops of the noble pine trees." Mr. Wilson, 
the husband of Mrs. Spalding's sister, had chosen a farm four miles 
south of the Mast Camp ; and in order that the two sisters might 
be neighbors, Mr. Spalding left the i)lace he had at first occupied, 
and settled on the land next north of Wilson's. These two farms 
remained in the possession of the two families for a century. His 
house, the largest then in Cornish, is still standing, and until quite 
recently was the home of some of his descendants. The location 
was chosen with much taste, being in a grove of very large butter- 
nut trees, on a knoll, around two sides of which flowed " Colonel 
Spalding's Brook." The Connecticut River can be seen from the 
house, and Mount Ascutney rises on the opposite bank of the 
river. The farm consists of meadow and hill. " Col. Spalding's 
mountain " is five hundred feet high. "Col. Spalding's Brook," 
full of falls and rapids in beautiful variety, comes down the moun- 
tain, and after running parallel to the Connecticut for a mile, at 
last empties into it. 

On the fifth of March, 1769, their eldest child was born, and 
named Esther, for Esther, the daughter of Lois Spalding, and wife 
of Thomas Wilson, who lived on the Low Meadows opposite. 

On the fifth of May, 1772, their son Silas was born ; and on the 
fifth of June, 1775, their son Lyman was born. 

At the breaking out of the Revolutionary war, Mr. Spalding 
again became a soldier. He placed his family in charge of his 
wife's brother, Timothy Parkhurst, a school-master, who was lame 
and unfit for military duty ; he was an excellent penman, as is 
shown by the family record, which he wrote in Mr. Spalding's 
large family Bible. 

" At the breaking out of the Revoliitionary war, a great many 
of the people of Claremont, who sided with the King, removed to 
Canada, or to other places under the protection of the British. 
No favor was shown to the tories, or even to those suspected by 
the people in general. Public indignation was aroused to such an 
extent that it was not safe for the remaining ones to live at home, 
but they were obliged to resort to the woods as a means of safety, 
visiting their homes but with the utmost caution. Aljout fifty rods 
below the Rich Place, on the right side of the road as you go to 
Red Water Brook, there is a place known in revolutionary times to 
have been the resort of a band of tories, for this reason called Tory 
Hole. This place was peculiarly adapted to their purposes, being 
surrounded upon three sides by a swamp, covered with a thick 
growth of alders, and upon a fourth by a steep bank almost thirty 
feet in heiglit ; there being several paths leading to and from the 
camp known to the tories only. There was at this time a small

boating, lie conveyed the troops across the Connecticut. He was 
present at the battle of Saratoga, and at Burgoyue's surrender, 
October 10, 1777. 

During the Revolution, Dj-er Spalding held successively the 
ranks of captain, major, and colonel. The war being ended, Col- 
onel Spalding returned once more to his family in Cornish. The 
sword Avhich he carried during the war is now in the possession of 
Lyman Dyer Spalding, of Portsmouth, N. H. 

Trinity Church was built in Cornish, probably in 1794. Colonel 
Spalding and his family worshipped there. When no clergyman 
was present, Lj^man Spalding read the services. 

Colonel Spalding was an excellent farmer, and was so ingenious 
he could work as a blacksmith or a mason, understood boating, was 
a shoemaker for himself and family, and carved bowls and dishes 
from knots of trees. Having been a soldier so many years, he was 
equal to any work or any emergency. He had served his country 
in two wars, had proved himself a good soldier, and had seen the 
United States become independent. Having been a pioneer in 
the wilderness, he had seen the forests recede before cultivation, — 
the effect, in part, of his own enterprise and industry. He had a 
very pleasant disposition, very lively and cheerful, and was a most 
affectionate father. 

His only daughter Esther was married in 1794 to Mr. Bill Barnes, 
of Claremont, N. H. Ljanan graduated at Harvard University, 
and Cornish was his home no longer. Thus Silas alone was left 
with his parents. He brought his wife, Theodora Holton, there, in 
1799. 

Colonel Dyer Spalding died April 27, 1814, aged eighty-two 
years. Elizabeth, his wife, died June 3, 1816, aged eighty-two 
years. Their remains lie in the grounds of Trinity Church, Cor- 
nish, N. H. 

Esther Spalding, daughter of D3'er Spalding, went on a journey 
to Plainfield, Conn., to visit her grandmother, Elizabeth Parkhurst. 
This was in 1789, when Esther was twenty years old. She was 
accompanied by her brother, Silas Spalding, her aunt Wilson 
(Patience Parkhurst), and Dr. Paikhurst, of Connecticut. The 
journey was made on horseback ; there was no other way to go. 
The first day they went to Chesterfield, N. H., about forty miles. 
Esther was so tired when she dismounted she almost fainted, but 
she bore the rest of the journey very well. 

The grandmother was ninety years old, and nearly blind, so she 
felt how large and tall Esther was. The chimney of the house was 
very large, and the fireplace so capacious that benches were placed 
in the corners of the jambs ; Esther sat on them and looked out of 
the top of the chimney. The party also went to Providence, R. I., 
where Esther bought a changeable red and black silk dress, Avhich 
in after years she gave to her daughter, Mrs. Eastman. 
Their children were all born in Cornish, N. H.

FIFTH GENERATION. 71 

772. Phineas^ [257] (Isaac^ Eclward3, John^, Edward^), b. Jan. 
23, 1719-20, in Plainfield, Conn. ; he settled in Cornwall, Conn., 
from which place he removed in 1757, with a large family of chil- 
dren, by way of Fort Edward and Lake George, to what he sup- 
posed was Panton, Vt., of which town he was an original proprietor. 
He remained on the Swift farm, now in Addison, Vt., till Nov. 5, 
1778, when his house and goods were burnt, and two of his sons 
taken prisoners. He escaped to Rutland, Vt., but died there not 
long after. 

It is supposed that Oct. 1777, Phineas Spalding and eleven oth- 
ers of Panton and Addison were taken and kept awhile on board a 
vessel in the "\dcinity. Phineas Spalding was employed to dress 
the animals brought on board for food, until an opportunity occurred 
to him to jump into a small boat alongside the vessel, when he pad- 
dled for the shore, but before he reached it, he was observed and 
ordered back. Knowing they would fli-e upon him, and thinking his 
body too large a mark to escape, he plunged into the water, and 
swam safely ashore, amid the bullets of the British. 

His son Nathan enlisted, and left home Jan. 20, 1776. He died 
at Quebec, the May following, of the small-pox, while being carried 
in a cart, when the army retreated. 

In 1778 Maj. Carlton made a descent from Canada, and took tliirty- 
nine men and boys prisoners, among them Halcomb Spalding. 

I h ave been unable to establish a correspondence with any branch 
of this family. The names of the five sons of Phineas I believe to 
be, —

there, about 1750. N.A.Spalding, of Hudson, N. Y., says: "I

died before 1810."

Wolcott N. Adams. He was in the French war, and was present 
at the taking of Quebec by General Wolfe. Both his sons were in 
the Revolutionaiy army, and, in addition, he hired a man b,y the 

name of Daniel , and paid him eight dollars per month all 

through the war, and took care of his wife and two children. He 
once collected one huncked and twenty cattle and took them to the 
army, five of which were his own contribution. His house was a 
retreat for sick and wounded soldiers ; thirty were sent to him to 
be kept for the winter, and in the spring twenty-eight went back to

the first man, a lic^utenant, much to his disgrace at the time. 
Sharpshooting was not then in repute, and his family apolo- 
gized for his act as accidental. The orders were not to tire until 
the command was given. These he disobeyed. Wliile the 
British forces were advancing, a lieutenant was in the act of 
jumping over a stone wall, in the direct range of the musket of 
Jonas. The aim was so good, the excitement and fear of losing 
his man so great, tliat a curl of the finger did the deed ; then 
followed an irregular fire. The officer in command struck him 
a stunning blow on the head with his sword, and he was put 
under arrest for disobeying orders."

80 THE SPALDING MEMORIAL,. 

Hill, he was ordered to the American camp at Cambridge. Dr. 
Spalding used to say that he remembered the booming of the 
cannon on the day of that bloody battle. 

The early j-ears of Dr. Spalding were passed in agricultural pur- 
suits. He worked on the farm of his father at Old Chelmsford, and 
on the land owned by him on the Merrimack, near Pawtucket Falls, 
in what is now Lowell. He always retained the impress of these 
early labors ; and although very devoted to the profession he after- 
wards chose, he was an enthusiast in farming, and in all its im- 
provements, to the last days of his life. 

When a young man, his health became feeble, and he was advised 
to seek a liberal education. He accordingly commenced his studies 
at Westford Academy, under the tuition of the late Professor 
Hedge, and entered Harvard College a year and a half in advance. 
He graduated with honor in 1798, in a class having as its members 
such men as Stephen Longfellow, Rev. Dr. Chauning, and Judge 
Story. Although the eldest member of his class, he smwived all 
but two of his classmates. 

Having adopted the profession of medicine, he studied with Dr. 
Benjamin Waterhouse, of Cambridge, Professor of Theory and 
Practice in Harvard University ; and subsequently with Dr. Hol- 
yoke, of Salem. In 1801 he went to London, passing a year there 
in attendance upon medical lectures, and devoting himself with 
gi'eat industry to the professional advantages afforded by the med- 
ical schools and hospitals. He attended the lectures of Sir Astley 
Cooper and the younger Cline, and received from them many 
marks of personal attention. He knew Drs. Lettsom and Jenner, 
with the latter of whom he enjoyed a special acquaintance. From 
him he derived much valuable information relating to vaccination, 
a subject in which he was always greatly interested. His friend 
and former pupil. Dr. J. P. Batchelder, of New York, sa^^s in 
regard to Dr. Spalding's agency in the introduction of vaccination 
into the United States : '' From his intimacy with Jenner, and 
knowledge of what had transpired in London during his residence 
there, in relation to the efficac}^ of the vaccine matter to prevent 
small-pox, he on his return engaged most zealously in the practice 
of vaccination. Perhaps it would not be too much to say that he 
did more than any man, except Waterhouse, to introduce that 
important practice into this country." 

On his return from England, in 1802, he was the bearer of a let- 
ter from Jenner to his former instructor, Dr. AYaterhouse, with the 
celebrated silver snuff-box, containing vaccine, and having on it 
this inscription : " From the Jenner of the Old World to the Jenner 
of the New." Dr. Waterhouse had been the first to introduce the 
great discovery of Jenner into practice in this country, in the face 
of great opposition. 

Soon after his return home, Dr. Spalding commenced practice in

his native town, Chelmsford, where he remained four years, secur- 
ing a large business, and a high reputation as a sui'geon. 

In 180G he removed to Amherst, N. H., at that time the prin- 
cipal town in the southern part of the State, where he continued to 
reside during the remainder of his life. Here he married, in 1806, 
Rebecca- Wentworth, daughter of Hon. Joshua Atherton, a woman 
of refined and superior natui*e. He had eight chilch'en, two oi 
whom are physicians. 

While living at Chelmsford, he had been called on several occa- 
sions to Amherst, and other places in the vicinity. In the adjoin- 
ing town of "Wilton, he had successfully performed trepanning in a 
case of fi'actured skull, an operation at that time practically 
unknown in that region, and which gave him a favorable reputa- 
tion as a surgeon. His professional calls often compelled him to 
take long and fatiguing rides through a country poorly supplied 
with good roads, some of them being mere bridle-paths, in which 
the use of a carriage was out of the question. Although his con- 
stitution was originally feeble, yet, by regularity of life, and a 
careful abstinence from all injurious indulgences, he was able to 
perform a large amount of professional labor. His ability to work 
hard and continuously on a small allowance of sleep was very unu- 
sual. It was his habit to sit up until the midnight hours, and to 
rise before other members of the family began to move. 

Sensible of the advantage which would come to the profession 
and the public from a better acquaintance among medical men 
than their occasional meetings would afford, Dr. Spalding exerted 
himself to bring together the regular phA'sicians in his neighbor- 
hood, for the purpose of mutual improvement and professional cul- 
ture. To him, more than to any other man, the Southern District 
Medical Society of the State owed its existence. This Society 
was instituted in 1816, and embraced the towns of Hillsborough 
County, with the adjacent parts of the counties of Rockingham and 
Cheshire. In the first year of its existence it had on its record 
the names of fifteen physicians who resided in fourteen neighbor- 
ing towns, his own name being first on the list. "Within three 
3'ears, its members increased to more than thu'ty. Dr. Spalding 
was, for many years, its president and librarian. In 1809 he was 
elected a fellow of the New Hampshire Medical Societ}-, in which 
he continued an active member until age and infirmit}^ rendered 
him exempt. He held the ofBce of vice-president from 1815 to 
1821 inclusive ; and that of president in 1822 and 1823. In 1817, 
the Honorary Degree of Doctor of Medicine was conferred on 
him by Dartmouth College. He was elected an Honorary Mem- 
ber of the New York Academy of Medicine, June 1, 1860. 

Favored with an education which, for the times, was superior to 
that of most of his medical brethren around him, he also possessed 
many natural qualities fitting him for the profession of his choice. 
In heart and manners he was a gentleman, with an integrity and 
purity of character which were never questioned. His equanimity

and cheerfulness rarely forsook him. As must be the case in an 
extensive countr}^ practice, it often happened that he was called in 
cases of emergency, which admitted of no hesitation or delay. He 
could not easily avail himself of the counsel of learned and experi- 
enced men, but he was fertile in resources, and had, in a rare degree, 
the ability to make a practical application of the fruits of previous 
study and careful observation. He was calm and self-reliant, and 
impressed the minds of his patients with the feeling that he compre- 
hended their situation, and that he would do all that a iaithful, cau- 
tious, and intelligent physician could do. 

Dr. Batchelder, of New York, who was one of his first pupils, 
remarks of him : " If he erred at all in the treatment of disease, it 
was in trusting too much to the powers of nature, especially if the 
patient had a good constitution." The experience of half a century 
in throwing light upon the curative powers of the materia medica, 
would perhaps recognize, in this feature of his practice, evidence of 
sagacious observation in advance of his times. He undoubtedly 
possessed this faculty in an uncommon degree. In a practice ex- 
tending over so long a period, among a rural population in which 
changes were comparatively infrequent, he became thoroughly 
acquainted with the idiosyncrasies of individuals, and their consti- 
tutional or hereditary tendencies. It was interesting and instruc- 
tive to notice how readily he comprehended the condition of patients 
with whose families he had been familiar through two or three gen- 
erations. 

He had great faith in true science, and genuine contempt of all 
quackery in medicines or practice. His decision, cheerfulness, and 
gentleness of manner made him A^ery acceptable in a sick room. 
The children who had been his patients became very fond of him ; 
indeed, he was a favorite with children generally. 

With all Dr. Spalding's habitual caution, he did not hesitate to 
make a change in received modes of treatment, when he saw suffi- 
cient reason for it. This was strikingly proved at the time of the 
prevalence of spotted fever, many years ago. Hot applications 
were considered to be the true treatment, but he had warm bricks 
and blankets removed, and allowed cold water to be taken in mod- 
erate quantity. This change proved of great advantage, not only 
to the patient's comfort, but to his recovery ; and this form of 
treatment was afterward generally adopted. 

The genial presence and hopeful spirit of Dr. Spalding made him 
ever welcome to the sick chamber. His vigor continued so unim- 
paired through a long series of years, that, at the age of threescore 
and ten, he performed some surgical operations. In the early part 
of his professional life, his office was the resort of students, some- 
times sufficient in number to form quite a medical class. Many of 
these went into practice in neighboring towns, and through life they 
cherished with gratitude the remembrance of his instructions and 
his influence. Some of these attained distinction in other States, 
as physicians, surgeons, and professors iu medical institutions. 



FTPTH GENERATION. 83 

A sketch of Dr. Spalding's life would be incomplete without ref- 
erence to his social qualities, and the high estimation in which he 
was held as a citizen and a Christian. His character attracted 
friendship and confidence. He was cordial in his feelings, and 
kept aliA'c the glow and warmth of early attachments. He was fond 
of poetry and music, and could sing quite well. He had a rare 
gift at story-telling, and his anecdotes never lost their freshness 
and point. As a citizen, he never sought political office, but he 
was always relied upon as the friend and supporter of such meas- 
ui'es as aimed to promote education, good morals, and the general 
welfare. His symmetrical and genuine Christian character was 
illustrated by the fruits of charity and good-will. He made a con- 
scientious and judicious use of his professional opportunities to 
impress the minds of his patients with the claims of religion, and 
he was alwaj^s ready to answer those calls for spiritual guidance 
and consolation which sometimes appeal to the Christian physician 
. as to no other person. 

His church connection was with the Orthodox Congregational 
denomination, in which he maintained the office of deacon for 
nearly half a century. He was not a demonstrative Christian, but 
no one could know him well and not be convinced that religion 
held in his mind its place as most important of all mortal interests, 
and the controlling influence of his daily life. He was a constant 
aad appreciative hearer of the gospel, and a studious reader of the 
Holy Scriptures. He was able to read the Bible until the ninety- 
fourth year of his age, after which time his faculties declined. A 
fortnight before his death, he spoke of his long life, of the depar- 
ture before him, of his early friends, and of the comforting support 
of a Christian faith. In this faith he closed a long, useful, and hon- 
orable life.

He was an adherent of the jurisdiction of New Hampshire. On the 
28th of Oct. 1774, he was committed to the common gaol, for high 
treason against the British tyrant, George III. All that they 
proved against him was that he said, "If the king has signed the 
Quebec bill, it is my opinion that he has broken his coronation oath." 
But the good people went and opened the prison door and let him 
go, and did no violence to any man's person or property. \^SIade's

tions in the Revolutionary war.

They moved to Northumberland, N. H., from Londondeny, N. H,, 
having one child, Edward. Of the ancestors of Mrs. Spalding 
we have no knowledge, except that, by her own statement to her 
chilcb-en, she was the granddaughter of Mrs. Thomas Dustin, of 
Indian notoriety. She was a small woman, never exceeding in 
weight ninety-one pounds, but very robust. 

Mr. Spalding cleared up a piece of land, seciu'ed his crops, and 
built a hut or house, and then returned for his family. This dwell- 
ing was constructed of four posts set in the ground, in which notches 
were cut, and to which notches poles were fastened, and, then cov- 
ered with bark and boughs. The fire was built on the ground, the 
smoke passing out through an opening in the roof. This single 
room was parlor, kitchen, pantry, and sleeping apartment. 

On their way to Coos County, ^ith their scanty furniture, includ- 
ing the little spinning-wheel, they spent the night at Haverhill, 
N. H. Their little boy, then a year and a half old, while plaj'ing 
around a smudge, made to keep off mosquitoes, was so badly burned 
that he could go no farther. Mr. Spalding went on alone. In a 
few days the child was so much improved that his wife started after 
him, taking a few light articles in a copper teakettle (which is now 
in the possession of Mr. Savage). The distance was fifty miles ; 
there was no road, and the way was indicated by spotted trees. 
She went on, sometimes fording streams up to her armpits, and at 
night she scooped out a bed at the roots of a tree for her child, and, 
covering it with moss, sat watching by its side, the silence of the 
night being broken only by the bowlings and hootings of wild 
beasts. Near the close of the second day, she met her husband 
returning for her. 

One of the greatest trials of these settlers was the depredations 
of the Indians. Mrs. Spalding, by her tact and discernment, 
obtained their good-will and respect. Although a small woman, 
her resolution and self-reliance were such that she alwaj's com- 
manded obedience. On one occasion, a large Indian warrior, being 
troublesome and revengeful, put his hands upon her shoulders, 
intending evil ; she stepped back, saying, " You dirty dog, put 
your hands upon me again if you dare !" The Indian was com- 
pletely cowed, and sneaked off. 

Mrs. Spalding's house was often the resort of the Indians to hold 
their powows. As it was not safe for a white man to be present 
on such occasions, she secreted her husband and children away 
from home. She invariably demanded of the Indians the posses- 



FIFTH GENERATION. 87 

sion of all their weapons before they commenced their carousal, 
and retained them until they were sober. 

At the opening of the Revolutionary war, the settlers of the 
town, with those of Lancaster adjoining, concluded, upon consul- 
tation, that it was better to give up their new homes, and retm-n to 
their former places of residence, the Indians being hostile. Mrs. 
Spalding alone objected. Supposing that she would consent, the 
others made their arrangements to leave, again appealing to her to 
accompany them ; her answer was " Go, if you have not the cour- 
age to sta}- at our homes " Her determination nerved the whole 
settlement, and they decided to remain 

At one time one of the family of her son Edward was taken dan- 
gerously ill. He went for his mother, twelve miles distant, and 
found her lying upon the floor before a large fire, unable to move, 
suffering from rheumatism. She insisted on going, and with diffi- 
culty was placed upon the back of a three-j'ears'-old colt, the only 
horse that could be procured. After riding two or three miles, she 
brightened up, rearranged her saddle, and said to her son, "' I will 
leavQ the road behind me," and was soon out of sight. 

Mrs. Spalding was noted for her horsemanship. Three days 
before her death, being then nearly ninety, wishing to go from her 
gi-andson's to her son's house, thi-ee quarters of a mile distant, she 
was placed upon a spirited horse, her friends thinking to lead him. 
She demanded the bridle and a stick, and went off on a gallop. 

These incidents show that she was a ti-ue descendant of the hero- 
ine of Dustin's Island.

ent, under the command of Col. John Stark. " The New Hamp- 
shire troops took their position at the rail fence, betwixt the 
redoubt and the Mystic river. They immediately threw up a sort 
of breast-work of stones across the beach to the river, and con- 
tinued the rail fence down the hill to this stone wall or breast- 
work. This wall served a most excellent purpose, as the sharp- 
shooters behind it could take the most deadly aim at the advancing 
foe ; and it is a well-established fact that the British troops in front 
of this wall were almost completely annihilated."

He used to say that the clergy preached the doctrine of forgetful- 
ness as well as forgiveness of injuries, but he added, " I can for- 
give, but I see no sin in remembering." He was very positive in 
all his character, although unfortunately subject at times to men- 
tal depression. He was very methodical in all his habits, and was 
rarely hurried or perturbed by the movements of others. He 
closed a long and useful life at the age of eighty-six years.

1791; studied law with Judge Adams, of Litchfield, Conn., and 
settled in Norwich, Conn., as an attorney in 1782. 

" He was without patrimony or any special patronage, but by 
the force of native ability, sound judgment, and integrity, he 
acquired an extensive law practice, sustained various offices of 
trust and honor, and by diligence accompanied with strict econ- 
omy in his domestic affairs, amassed a handsome property. At 
the time of his death in 1811, he was reckoned one of the richest 
men in the eastern part of Conn. Yet it was no easy matter to 
grow rich in the practice of the law. The price for managing a 
case before the Common Pleas varied only from 6 to 30 shil- 
lings, and before the Superior Court from 6 to 54 shillings." 

l^Hist. of Norwich^ Miss F. M. Calkins.'] 

The following sketch is by his nephew, the Hon. R. P. Spalding, 
of Cleveland, Ohio : — 

" At the time of his settlement in Norwich, he was so poor that 
it is said he borrowed from Capt. Simeon Huntington, an indus- 
trious blacksmith who lived near his office, a sufficient sum of 
money to enable him to pay for a plain silver watch. For many 
years he lived in a small house, and under a system of the most 
rigid economy. So much so, that he is said to have reproved a 
brother lawyer for his extravagance in giving six cents for an 
orange, remarking, with emphasis, that ' it was the interest of a 
dollar for a whole year.' 

" He was a sound lawyer, but by no means a polished advocate. 
It is related of him that, on one occasion, while arguing a ques- 
tion of law before a judge of the Superior Court who liked his 
dinner better than recitals from ' Coke upon Littleton,' the hour 
for adjournment at noon having arrived, the judge became impa- 
tient, and frequently, but without effect, presented the face of his 
watch to the advocate to induce him to take his seat. At last 
the judge in his wrath exclaimed, ' Mr. Spalding, you have talked 
three quarters of an hour, and have said nothing to the purpose 
yet.' ' Very well, your honor,' said the imperturbable lawyer, ' I 
expect to speak three quarters of an hour longer, and before I get 
through I hope I may say something to the purpose.' 

" Unremitting in his attention to business, and scrupulously just 
in all his dealings, it is not surprising that his services were sought 
for by parties at a distance. On one occasion he was employed 
by the Hon. John Hancock, of Boston, to collect a very consider- 
able claim in Connecticut, growing out of a mercantile transaction 
that had occurred at the first-named place some years before. Pay- 
ment of the claim was stoutly contested by the party in Connecti- 
cut, so much so that, on two several trials, the jury had returned 
a verdict for defendant ; but the subject of our notice, ever tena- 
cious of the rights of his client, and especially so in this instance, 
where the character of the plaintiff had, to some extent, become 
involved, procured from the court an order for a third and last 
trial. He immediately wrote to Boston, and urgently entreated 



96 THE SPALDING MEMORIAL. 

Governor Hancock to attend court in person, belie\ang the pres- 
tige of his presence would favorably influence the jmy. At the 
appointed time, Governor Hancock came in his coach, attended by 
a retinue of servants, to the place of trial in Connecticut. He was 
suffering intensely at the time from an attack of the gout, and was 
borne into the court-house wrapped in flannels. Impressed with a 
spirit of veneration for his lofty patriotism and long-continued ser- 
vices in the councils of the Confederacy, the judges, as a mark of 
distinction, invited him to a seat upon the Bench. The trial pro- 
ceeded in his presence, but the result was no longer adverse or 
even questionable . 

" The jury, with great alacrity, returned a verdict for the plain- 
tifl" in the full amount claimed, with interest. 

" Mr. Spalding died very suddenly, on the 11th day of August, 
in the year 1811, at the early age of fifty-four. His only child, a 
daughter named Maria, the idol of his affections, and a young 
lady of the highest promise, died two years before him, at the age 
of twelve. For some years before his death, he had owned and 
occupied as a residence the spacious mansion in Norwich Town, 
erected b}'^ Governor Samuel Huntington. This house, with its 
majestic portico and massive pillars, and its surroundings of lofty 
and umbrageous elms, presented, in 1811, the most imposing ap- 
pearance of any structure in that ancient town. 

" Asa Spalding was, in politics, a democrat of the Jeffersonian 
school, and for many successive years was the candidate of the 
democratic party for Governor of Connecticut, without the remotest 
prospect of an election. 

" He left an estate of $150,000, the fruits of his industry, a great 
sum for those days, to be divided equally between his sister, Mary 
Cady, and his three brothers, Ebenezer, Rufus, and Luther, all of 
whom survived him. He was an honest man, and good to the j^oor. 
The descendants of Edward of Braintree may well respect his 
memory."

Dr. Spalding received a good common-school education, and 
studied medicine with Dr. Perkins, a phj^sician of some celebrity, 
at Plainfield, Conn. He commenced the practice of his profession 
at Mansfield, Conn., but on the 23d of October, 1789, he fixed his 
residence upon the Island of Martha's Vineyard, in Dukes County, 
Massachusetts, where he practised physic with great success, until 
April, 1812, when he returned with his family to the State of Con- 
necticut, and took up his abode at Norwich, in the county of New 
London, where he lived, greatly respected, until his death, which

occurred on the 22d day of August, 1830, at the a,ge of seventy 
3^ears and seven mouths. 

Doctor SpakUng is the individual alluded to in Kendall's Book 
of Travels, as attending to a nuiltiplicity of avocations at one and 
the same time, while living on Martha's Vineyard. In the year 
1807 he liv*ed at Holmes Hole, where, with a family of nine chil- 
dren, he fouud it necessary to resort to every means by which he 
might "turn an honest penny." In addition to the most extensive 
practice on the island, as a physician, he kept a house of public en- 
tertainment, was postmaster, justice of the peace, school director, 
villao;e librarian, and master of the Lodge of F. & A. M. He was 
a man of genial temperament, and nmch given to hospitality. He 
had an inexhaustible fund of anecdote, and was quick at repartee. 
His visiting acquaintance was legion. 

Few persons have lived their threescore years and ten, who 
have left so small a number of eaemies to rejoice at their depar- 
ture 

His children were well tr lined and faithfully educated, the eldest 
son being sent to Yale College, where he graduated in the class 
of 1817. Nine of them publicly professed Christ. 

Three more stately men, or nloie respected, than the bi'others 
Asa, Rufus, and Luther Spalding, have seldom appeared on the 
stage of action. They lie near together in the old cemetery at 
ISorwich Town.

County. At the death of his brother Asa Spalding, hg assumed

spring of 1812 he moved into the " Huntington House," which he 
purchased from the heirs of Asa Spalding, where he lived until his 
death. His oldest son, George, was educated at Yale College,

He vras one of the first settlers of Merrimack, N. H., where he 
owned a large tract of land, from which he gave farms to several 
of his sons. He came up fiom Chelmsford, Ms., and cleared a 
piece of land and built a house, before he married. His original 
farm, lying north and west of Netacook Pond, is now in possessi<)n 
of the Reed family. He was a man of rather more than medium 
size, both in height and breadth, and had a very strong voice. It 
is said that it could be distinctly heard at a distance of two miles. 
His mark for cattle and sheep, recorded in the town books of Mer- 
rimack, Dec. 23, 1772, was a slit in the right ear, and a half-penny 
the under side of the same. He died in Meriimack, N. H., Sept.

He was a farmer, and passed his whole life in the house in which 
he was born, in Cornish, N. H. It was situated on the River road, 
two miles below the bridge which crosses the Connecticut to Wind- 
sor, Vt. Having, at one time, been annoyed by a weasel that 
made many visits to his poultry yard, he determined to shoot it if 
possible. He found the weasel's home, and not far off lay a gos- 
ling and a duck, which had just been killed. When the weasel put 
his head out of the hole, Mr. Spalding fired ; but the nimble creature 
had found time to run some distance, quite out of the range of the 
shot. Sanford, the son of Mr. Spalding, exclaimed, " Father ! that 
is not the way to shoot a weasel ; let me have the gun." So he 
took it, the animal, meantime, having gone home again ; and, aim- 
ing at the hole, he fired ; the weasel was just coming out ; the shot 
entered his head, and he was dead in an instant. " Alwaj's fire 
at the spot a quarter of a second before the weasel comes to it ; that 
is the way to shoot a weasel, father." He m. Theodosia Holton,

bridge and Philadelphia, and he entered upon the practice of medi- 
cine at Portsmouth, N. H., in 1799. He devoted much attention 
to the study of the human structure, was a very skilful anatomist, 
and his admirable anatomical preparations, particularly of the 
lymphatics, are now in the cabinets of our first institutions. In 
1812, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of the Western Dis- 
trict of the State of New York, at Fairfield, Herkimer County, 
was incorporated. Doctor Spalding being elected president, and 
professor of anatomy and surgery, made annual visits to this 
school. In 1813, he removed to the city of New York, and a few 
years later resigned his position at the college. With Doctor 
Spalding originated the plan for the formation of the Pharma- 
copoeia of the United States, by the authority of all the medical 
societies and medical schools in the Union. In January, 1817, he 
submitted the project to the New York County Medical Society ; in 
February, 1818, it was adopted by the Medical Society of the State 
of New York, and ordered to be carried into execution by their com- 
mittee, Doctor Spalding being one of the number. All the medical 
schools and societies appointed delegates, who at once commenced 
their labors, and the first edition of the work was published in I82O. 
To keep pace with the advance of medical science, a new edition is 
published every ten years. Dr. Spalding was a contributor to the 
New England Jottrnal of Medicine^ the New York Medical Reposi- 
tory^ Le Nouveau Joiirnal de Medicin of Paris, and other medical and 
philosophical journals ; and besides several lectures and addresses, 
he published " Reflections on Fever, and particularly on the Inflam- 
matory Character of Fever" (1817), " Reflections on Yellow Fever 
Periods " (1819), and "A History of the Introduction and Use 
of Scutellaria Lateriflora, as a remedy for preventing and curing 
hydrophobia" (1819). 

Doctor Spalding was active in introducing into the United 
States the practice of vaccination as a preventive of small pox, 
corresponding with Dr. Edward .Tenner for that purpose. He was 
a trustee of the only free schools which New York then possessed, 
and aided in the establishment of the first Sunday schools in that 
city; m. Elizabeth Cowes, Oct. 9, 1802 ; she was the daughter of

The colony of Conn, claimed, by virtue of its charter, a tract 
of land in Penn., over 120 miles in length and GO in breadth. 
Under this claim, the Susquehanna Company was formed in 1754, 
at Hartford, and purchased land on the Susquehanna River, of the 
Indians, and for many years there was a gradual emigration in 
progress from Conn. Among the emigrants was Simon Spalding, 
who removed to Wyoming with his family, at an early period of its 
settlement. His marriage, and the births of his three oldest chil- 
dren, are recorded in Plainfield, Conn. So that we infer he left 
soon after 1771. He removed from Wyoming with his family, and 
settled in Sheshequin, Bradford Co., Penn., May 30, 1783. In 
command of his company, he was with Gen SulliA'an in his expe- 
dition in 1779 ; and at that time, as the army passed through 
Sheshequin valley, he was so impressed with the appearance and 
location of the place, that he resolved to make it his fnture resi- 
dence. He first bought of the Susquehanna Compan}^ under the 
Connecticut title ; and farms were allotted to himself, his sons, 
and sons-in-law, in the upper part of the valley, extending from 
the river back to the mountain. He was a large man, of imposing 
and pleasing appearance. He was a captain in the Kevolutionary 
war, and was commissioned general in the militia, after he removed 
to Sheshequin. The following is an invitation from Gen. Simon 
Spalding, to Judge Obadiah Gore and family', to attend the wed-

Philip and his brother George were captured on his father's 
farm, Nov. 5, 1778, and carried to Canada in company with other 
prisoners. They, however, managed to escape ; and Philip, with 
some others, wandered in the woods 21 days, when they struck 
the Connecticut River at the Great Ox-bow, in Newbury, Vt. 
George was retaken and put in irons, but afterwards he was offered 
his liberty if he would first go one trip in a vessel to Great Britain. 
Stopping at some port in Ireland, he availed himself of his per- 
mission to go ashore with the crew, when he was taken by a press- 
gang, and nothing more is known of him. Philip, after Ms return, 
enlisted and served through the Revolutionary war ; then married 
and moved ou to the farm, on which his son, Hiram Spalding, now

to his deatih as follows : — 

" He was one of the oldest settlers of Niagara County, with the 
history of which he has been closely identified for over half a cen- 
tury. For many years, and until the infirmities of age disqualified 
him for active pursuits, he occupied a leading position in business 
and politics. He was an earnest Henry Clay whig, and latterly 
:an equally earnest Republican. He had been a witness of our 
■country's progress and prosperity from soon after the Revolution, 
through the war of 1812, and the late rebellion ; had seen AVash- 
ington, Pvitnam. Lafa3'ette, and other Revolutionary heroes. In 
liis last moments he was surrounded and tenderly cared for by his 
sons, F. Spalding, Esq., late collector of customs for Niagara 
District, Rev. V. Spalding, of Michigan, and his daughter, Mrs. 
Whitman, of Lewiston, N. Y,

" He was one of the hardy pioneers of western New York, the 
race of which is very nearly extinct. It is truly said of him that 
' he was a kind father, a true friend, hospital)le to the stranger, 
kind to the poor and needy, generous and upright, and just towards 
all men ; we shall not look upon his like again.' 

" Mr. Spalding was a favorite with both old and young ; and 
many a time has the writer of this seen the good, kind old man, 
when nearly fourscore years and ten, stop to say a pleasant word 
to the chil(h:en of the village — by whom he was most affection- 
ately and respectfully regarded — when at their sports, and de- 
mand in his humorous way, Wh}^ they didn't choose him on one 
side ? 

" The funeral took place at Lewiston, yesterday, and was largely 
attended, among those present being several friends and relatives 
from this city."

" He had been very healthy and robust until a few months 
before his death. He was a kind and atfectionate father, an obliging 
neighbor, and a highly esteemed citizen. He was a very industri- 
ous person, and had always lived on the farm on which he resided 
at the time of his deatli, and which he inherited, in part, from his 
grandfather, who was one of the earliest settlers of the town, aud 
who came upon the farm when the land was just as the Indians

left it. The early settlers had a fort on the farm, where they went 
for safety in times of the Indian wars ; some traces of this are still 
to be seen. Possessed of an unbending integrity and a genial dis- 
position, he became a valuable townsman, and this position he held 
with increasing respect until his death ; he leaves a large circle of 
relatives and friends to mourn his loss,"

was b. June 24, 1768, in Coventry, Conn. ; she d. Dec. 7, 1827. 

Dea. Spalding entered the town of Sharon, Vt., on the 16th of 
September, 1769, and took up his residence on the farm which he 
occupied at his death, making a period of eighty years. At the 
time of his settlement there were only seven families in town, and 
no inhabitants in Royalton, Barnard, or Pomfret. In consequence, 
his early life was passed amidst the hardships and sutferings 
incident to pioneers of the wilderness, and had much influence, no 
doubt, in forming that energy and fearlessness of character for 
which he was well known. He was a soldier of the Revolution, and 
drew a pension. His personal history is identified with the his- 
tory of the place of liis residence. He knew it all, and was him- 
self a part. He had twelve children, nine sons and three daugh- 
ters, — a circle that was unbroken until November, 1847, when he 
was called to mourn the death of Dr. Jason C. Spalding. That 
event called together under the paternal roof the Avhole family, 



SIXTH GEXEEATIOX. 159 

and presented not a faint picture of " olden times." There was 
seen tlie beauty and power of religion : the aged father, A-enerable 
for his gra}^ hairs, and yet more for his love and fear of God, like 
a patriarch, stood beside the remains of the departed one, and 
urged upon the living, with gTcat fervor of spirit, faithfulness in 
the service of that God in whom he trusted. 

Dea. Spalding had been a member of the Congregational church 
sixty-one years, during forty-two of which he sustained the office of 
deacon. He loved '' the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings 
of Jacob." Having become a member very soon after the church 
was organized, he had been Avith it through all its seasons of pros- 
perity and adversity, and was prominent among the few upon 
whom devolved the responsibility of supporting the Gospel. His 
interest was a gi'owiug interest. Whilst old age removetl him from 
the busy and attractive scenes of the world, it did not abate his 
devotedness to the cause of Christ. For that, there was a gi'owing 
love ; it was the theme of thought and conversation ; the Bible was 
his daily companion ; he loved the doctrines of grace ; and the 
church, of which he was an honored member, is a witness to his 
fiaithfuluess.

160 THE SPAIJ)ING MEMORIAL. 

1816, aged 55, in Pittsburg, Penn. ; other autliority says Amity, 
Wasliiugtoii Co., Pcnu. 

" In youth, he was a soldier in the Revolutionary army, and, 
leaving it, read law with Judge Zephaniali Swift, of Windham, 
Conn., but on change of religious views, sought the ministry, 
and entered the sophomore class at Dartmouth College at the age 
of twenty-one. Graduating there in 1785, he studied divinity, 
and became a licentiate of the Windham, Conn., Cong. Associa- 
tion, Oct. 9, 1787 ; preached eight or ten j^ears, and, being in this 
time ordained an evangelist, received several offers to settle, 
that were declined, owing to ill health. In 1795, he was mar- 
ried, and soon after went into business with his brother Josiah, at 
Cherry Valley, N. Y., but both removed the store to Richfield, N. 
Y., in 1799. Here they purchased large tracts of land in Penn- 
sylvania and Ohio, to superintend which, Solomon moved to Salem, 
Ohio, but the war of 1812 deranged their plans and caused great 
losses. Josiah, then visiting his brother, found him in poor health 
and low spirits, writing a work of fiction, suggested by the opening 
of a mound, in which was discovered human bones and some rel- 
ics indicative of a former civilized race. He entitled his work a 
' Manuscript Found,' and in it imagined the fortunes of the 
extinct people. Josiah left him thus employed. Not long after, 
probably in 1814, Solomon went to Pittsburg, Penn., where he 
was followed by Sidney Rigdon, then a printer and afterwards a 
noted Mormon. He told his employer of Spalding's novel, who 
borrowed the manuscript, and offered to print it. This was 
refused, and the author wandered to Amity, the place of his death. 
His widow returned to New York with the manuscript, and while 
absent from home, a stranger called on her and desired to examine 
it, that he might confirm or refute a report current in the West, 
that it had become the Mormon bible. She permitted him to visit 
her house and obtain it from a certain chest. He went and reported 
that he could not find it. Mrs. Spalding never saw it after this. 
The probability is, that Rigdon copied the work at Pittsburg, and 
that the stranger purloined the original to avoid a future exposure. 
The uniform testimonj^ of those who read the work is, that the ba- 
sis, and in great part, the form thereof, now constitute the Mormon 
bible. And thus a clerg3mian was most unwittingly and innocently 
the medium of a delusion, whose dimensions have become so large, 
and its impostures so monstrous." [Dartmouth Alumni, p. 32.] 

The above facts are embodied in a letter from his brother, given 
below. 

Eastford, Jan. 6, 1855. 

Bpv. Sir : — I received j^our letter of the 21st of December requestinfr me 
to give you a sketch of my V)rother Solomon's life. I should be pleased to 
obliije you satisfactoril.v, but my recollection and facultj' of mind is so much 
impaired with a.ae and infirmity, beini; within two months of ninety years 
of age, I can give but a broken narrative. He wasborn 17G1. In the first 
part of the Revolutionary war he was in the army or at work on the farm. 
1 do not recollect when he commenced study for education at High School, 



SIXTH GENERATION. 161 

nor how long he continued there, but when he left there he went to study 
with the celebrated Zephaniah Swift to prepare for the practice of law. How 
long he studied with him I do not recollect ; but before he got through, 
his mind changed from law to gospel, and he left and went to college ; but 
when I do not "recollect. I believe he was in college about three years. 
He did not study theology at any public school after he left college. When 
he left college he was out of health, and was so for years. He was appro- 
bated to preach as a Congregationalist, and followed that calling a number 
of years, but never settled, on account of his health, though often urged. In 
1795 he married. I went to Chei-ry Valley and commenced merchandising. 
I had no wife. He followed soon after with his wife and joined me in part- 
nership. He left the store to my care. He took the charge of an academy 
and preached occasionally for awhile. We continued in Cherry Valley 
about four years, and then we moved our store sixteen miles, to Richfield. 
We soon after went into a large speculation in new land in Pennsylvania and 
Ohio, and after a few years he moved out there with his wife ; she never 
had any children. He sold a large amount of land on credit principally to 
people in Ohio. The war that broke out with England seriously affected 
that country. That circumstance, with some other misfortunes that hap- 
pened, placed us in difficult circumstances. We were under the necessity 
to make great sacrifices to pay our debts. I went to see my brother, and 
staid -with him some time, i found him unwell, and something low in 
spirits. He began to compose his novel, which it is conjectured that the 
Mormons madeuse of in forming their bible. Indeed, although there was 
nothing in it of Mormonism or that favored error in any way, yet I am ap- 
prehensive that they took pattern from it in forming their delusion. You 
may find my reason in what follows. In the town where he lived, which 
I expect is now called Salem, Ohio, there is the appearance of an ancient 
fort, and near by a large mound, which, when opened, was found to con- 
tain human bones. These things give it the appearance of its being inhab- 
ited by a civilized people. These appearances furnished a topic of con- 
versation among the people. My brother told me that a young man told 
him that he had a wonderful dream. He dreamed that he himself (if I rec- 
ollect right) opened a great mound, where there were human bones. There 
he found a written history that would answer the inquiry respecting the civ- 
ilized people that once inhabited that country until they were destroyed by 
the savages. This story suggested the idea of writing a novel merely for 
amusement. The title of his novel, I think, was " Historical Novel," or 
" Manuscript Found." This novel is the history contained in the manu- 
script found. The author of it he brings from the Old World, but from 
what nation I do not recollect, I think not a Jew ; nor do I recollect how 
long since, but I think before the Christian Era. He was a man of supe- 
rior learning suited to that day. He went to sea, lost his point of com- 
pass, and finally landed on the American shore, I think near the mouth of 
the Mississippi River. There he reflects most feelingly on what he suffered, 
his present condition and future prospects ; he likewise makes some 
lengthy remarks on astronomy and philosophy, which I should think would 
agree in sentiment and style with very ancient writings. He then started 
and travelled a great distance through a wilderness country inhabited by 
savages, until he came to a country where the inhabitants were civilized, 
cultivated their land, and had a regular form of government which was at 
war with the savages. There I left him and never saw him nor his writings 
any more. He soon after moved to Pittsburg, in Pennsylvania, where he 
lived awhile and then moved farther, to a place where he died. His widow 
then returned to the State of New York, and lived there awhile and then 
came to Connecticut. She informed me, if I recollect right, that my 
|)rother continued his history of the civilized nation and the progress of 
the war until the triumph of the savages to the destruction of the civilized 
government. Likewise she informed me that soon after they arrived at 
Pittsburg a man followed them, I do not recollect his name, but he was

afterwards known to be a leading Mormon, He got into tlie employment 
of a printer, and he told the printer about my brother's composition. The 
printer called and requested the privilege of taking it home to read. He, my 
brother, let him take it; he kept it some time, and then he ui-ged him, my 
brother, to let him print it. He, my brother, would not consent, but took it 
back, and she said that she brought it to New York and put it into a chest 
where she lived. And at a time when she was from home a stranger called 
upon her and requested her to let him see the novel that her husband com- 
posed. He said that he lived at the West, and it was reported there that 
it gave rise to Mormonism ; if not true he wished to counteract the report. 
She told him that he might go to the house ; it was in a chest, he might take 
it and examine it. He went to the chest, and I think she told me that he 
said that he could not tind it, but it has never been found since. But what 
use could they make of it? I never saw tiie Mormon bible but once, and 
then only for a minute, no time to examine it. I have but little knowledge 
of Mormonism ; I have been out of the way of it. You, sir, no doubt, have 
more knowledge, but if I have been rightly informed, there is a striking 
resemblance between the first start and introduction of the Mormon bible 
and my brother's novel. They both claimed that the manuscripts from 
which they pretend they copied were of very ancient date and written by 
men that came here from the Old World. The Mormon bible was not pub- 
lished until after my brother's death.

168 THE SPALDING MEMORIAL. 

Tisbury, on the island of Martha's Vineyard, in the State of Mas- 
sachusetts. His father belonged to the Connecticut line of the 
family, and was the great-grandson of Benjamin Spalding, son of 
the first Edward, who emigrated from Chelmsford, Ms., and set- 
tled in Plainfield, Conn, in the latter part of the seventeenth cen- 
tury. His mother was Lydia Paine, daughter of David Paine, Esq., 
of Canterbur}', Conn., and a descendant, in the direct line, from 
Thomas Paine, who came over from England about the year 1639, 
and settled in Massachusetts. Elisha Paine, the son of Thomas, 
was an extensive landholder in the first settlement of the town of 
Canterbury. Rufus P. Spalding, the subject of this sketch, was 
pledged, by his father, from his infancy, to one of the learned pro- 
fessions. He was therefore kept at school from the earliest dawn 
of his understanding. In preparing for College, he was sent suc- 
cessivety to the academies at Bridgewater, Ms., Plainfield and 
Colchester, Conn. In September, 1813, he entered the Freshman 
class in Yale College, Connecticut, and in 1817 received from that 
institution the degree of Bachelor of Arts. His diploma was signed 
by Rev. Jeremiah Day, Doctor Timothy Dwight having died at the 
end of the first quarter of his senior year. 

Upon leaving college, he entered upon the study of the law with 
the Hon. Zephaniah Swift, Chief-Justice of Connecticut, who lived 
at Windham, the then seat of justice for Windham County. 

After completing his professional studies, he migrated to the 
State of Ohio, where he became eminent as a lawyer and as a 
statesman. On the 1st day of October, 1822, he was married to 
Lucretia A. Swift, daughter of Chief Justice Swift, of Connecticut. 

Having lost his first wife, the subject of our sketch was married, 
on the 11th day of January, 1859, toNancy-Sargeant, eldest daugh- 
ter of Doctor Wm. S. Pierson, of Windsor, Conn. In December, 
1841, being, for the second time, a member of the Legislature of 
his adopted State, Mr. S. was chosen speaker of the House of Rep- 
resentatives, and served in a very acceptable manner dm-ing that 
session, and an adjourned session in 1842. 

In the winter of 1848-9 he was elected, by joint vote of the two 
Houses of the General Assembly, a judge of the Supreme Court of 
Ohio for the constitutional term of seven years, of which he served, 
however, but three years. The new constitution, then adopted, 
reorganized the judiciary, and he declined being a candidate in the 
popular canvass that followed. 

The Hon. Wm. Lawrence, at this time member of Congress from 
Ohio, and reporter of the decisions of the Supreme Court while 
Judge Spalding was on the bench, thus speaks of him in a letter 
written to Prof. Wm. H. Barrows, the publisher of the work enti- 
tled '' The Fortieth Congress of the U. S." 

" The judicial service of Judge Spalding commenced March 
7, 1849, and terminated Feb. 1, 1852. He brought to the exalted 
position the force of a vigorous and cultivated intellect, imbued 
with a profound knowledge of the law, and enriched with clas- 



SIXTH GENERATION. 169 

sical attainments of no ordinary character. His opinions will be 
found in the 18th, 19th, and 20th volumes of Ohio Reports ; and 
it is, at least, no disparagement to others to say, that Judge 
Spalding has never had a superior ou tlie bench of the State. 

" The generous and urbane deportment of the Judge was such 
that he enjoyed the profound respect and esteem of the bar and all 
with whom he was associated, as the writer of this has abundant 
means of knowing." 

On retiring from the bench. Judge Spalding resumed the practice 
of the law in the city of Cleveland, and, as an advocate and coun- 
sellor, maintained the highest rank in the State. 

In politics, he was an active and devoted member of the Demo- 
cratic party from the days of Andrew Jackson until the passage of 
the Fugitive Slave law in 1850, when he thi'ew all his energy and 
influence into the ranks of the Free-Soil or Anti-slavery party. 

He was a member of the Convention at Pittsburg, Penn , in Feb- 
ruary, 1852 ; and it was on his motion that Hon. John P. Hale was 
nominated for the Presidency. He was again a member of a con- 
vention in Pittsburg in 1856, and it was here that the party adopted 
the name " Republican." He was, the same year, one of the dele- 
gates at large, from Ohio, to the National Convention at Philadel- 
phia, which nominated John C. Fremont for President. 

In October, 1862, Judge Spalding was chosen a Representative 
to the 38th Congress of the United States, from the 18th district of 
Ohio, made up of the counties of Cuyahoga, Summit, and Lake. He 
continued in Congress six years, having been twice re-elected ; so 
that he participated in the important legislation of the two last 
years of the war of the Rebellion, and in the exciting work of 
reconstruction that followed, until the 4th of March, 1869, when 
he retired, of his own choice, from the public service, very much 
to the regret of his constituents. 

"The determination of Judge Spalding to withdraw from active 
political life," says the author of a work recently published, enti- 
tled, " Cleveland, Past and Present, its Representative Men," " was 
a matter of surprise and regret to his colleagues in Congress, who had 
learned to value his sound judgment, ripe scholarship, earnest pa- 
triotism, and great legislative ability. It was a positive loss to the 
peopleof the Eighteenth Ohio District, for never had the interests 
of that district been better cared for. To Cleveland especially he 
proved, in reality, a representative member. The wishes of his con- 
stituents were promptly attended to,their interests carefully guarded, 
and ' no stone was left unturned ' in the endeavor to benefit the city 
and its people. The withdrawal of Judge Spalding from public 
political life, was a loss to the national councils in whicli he had 
achieved distinction, but was a still gi'eater loss to the constituency 
he represented. 

"He has returned to the legal profession, in which he ranlvS among 
the brightest lights, and finds in its practice, and in the quiet enjoy- 



170 THE SPALDING MEMORIAL,. 

ment of social and domestic life, a satisfaction which his public 
career, brilliant as it was, failed to give." 

Judge Spalding has, for many years, been a communicant in the 
Episcopal Church, and one of the vestry of Trinity Church, Cleve- 
land, where he is a constant attendant. Although in his seventy- 
second year, he is in the full enjoyment of all his faculties, and is 
the picture of sound health and mental vigor. 

Hon. Thaddeus Stevens once remarked to Hon. Benj. Wade, 
" Spalding is the right bower of intellectual liberty."

has left numerous monuments of his skill and energy, having built 
the whole of the canal around the falls of the Muskingum, and 
locks connected with it ; two wagon bridges and two railroad 
bridges across the Muskingum River. Having amassed a consid- 
erable fortune, and finding no more heavy works to accomplish, he

series of misfortunes, he lost all. He sacrificed all his prop- 
erty, and, having paid every debt, to the last dollar, he found him- 
self destitute of everything but his good name. Broken down in

2994. SoLOMON-RoBiNSON*' [1304] (Benaiah^, Joseph", Joseph^, 
Joseph'^, Edward^), b. May 31, 1805, in Putney, Vt. ; res. Boston, 
Ms. He is a merchant in that city, and is at the head of the firm 
"S. R. Spalding & Sons." 

In early boyhood he was constantly occupied upon his father's 
farm, except two mouths in summer and three months in winter, 
when he went to the district school. At the age of fifteen his 
father placed him under the instruction of the parish minister, 
thinking to prepare him for college, and subsequently for a pro- 
fessional life. But having become pecuniarily embarrassed by the 
failure of a local improvement, to which he had lent his credit, the 
college course for his son was abandoned. Solomon, now sixteen 
years of age, conceived the idea of seeking his fortune in Boston, 
but the project seemed to his parents extreme folly. He pressed 
the matter, and at last gained their consent. The next question 
was, where to find money to defray his expenses. At that time 
freight was moved through the country by the old-fashioned bag- 
gage wagons, and in front of the Spaldiugs' house was a steep 
hill, up which many teams passed daily, frequently requiring extra 
assistance, and by rendering such, with a pair of oxen, he often 
received ten or twelve cents for each load. By this means he had 
now accumulated eight dollars ; to this his father added four dol- 
lars and a half, making twelve dollars and a half to start with. 

"With this amount in money, and his clothing all packed in a 
checked linen handkerchief woven by his mother, he set out on his 
long journey. 



180 THE SrALDIlkrG MEMORIAL. 

In parting, his mother, taking liim by the hand, wanierl him of 
his exposnre to evil, and l)csongiit him, for her sake, to shun every 
path of vice. 

He started alone and on foot : reaching Boston, he secured a 
boarding-place at a dollar and a half per week, and began looking 
up employment by going from door to door through the business 
portions of the city. After many disappointments, he stopped at 
a store in Broad Street, and asked the usual question, and received 
the usual answer, no ! AVhen near the door going slowly away. 
One of the partners called him back, and asked wliat he could do? 
" Anything you ask me to do " " Will you set the store on fii'e 
if I emplo}' you, and i-equest you to do so? " " Yes, sir." "And 
would you put it out if I told you to?" "Yes, sir." "Well, 
boy," said he, " you may go to work for me." And here, at six 
dollars per month, boarding himself, he commenced his business 
career. When winter came, he had no overcoat, and no money 
to buy one ; so, rather than obtain one on credit, he endured the 
cold. 

At one time, when sweeping the store, he found a ten-cent piece^ 
which he handed his employer, who said, " Whj'^ did you not keep 
it?" "Because it does not belong to me," answered the young 
man. By this and similar proofs of his integrity, and by his un- 
wearied fidelity, he won the confidence of his emploj'ers, and soon 
bettered his finances. 

At the end of three j^ears he obtained a vacation to go home, 
being able this time to take a seat in the stage-coach. 

Soon after returning to Boston, one of his employers died ; the 
other was an indifferent business man, and in time the house failed, 
and Solomon was thrown out of his situation ; but, having made 
the favorable acquaintance of one of their customers, he was 
offered the position of bookkeeper and salesman. This gentle- 
man was about to relinquish his counti-j store, and open one in 
Boston in the hide and leather business. From this time date 
the circumstances, which, in after life, have so frequently given S. 
R. Spalding the name of father of the hide and leather trade of 
Boston. 

He continued with this employer for several years, when, in 
1832, an older brother having come to the city, they started busi- 
ness on their own account. They unfortunately connected them^ 
selves in the shipping business with a Philadeli)hia partner, who 
had considerable influence at the United States Bank, theu in ex- 
istence. This man proved a disaster to them ; for, loading several 
vessels with the credit of the firm, he escaped with them to South 
America, located at Buenos Ayres, and died after years of dissi- 
pation, having squandered the substance of his villany. 

Mr. Spalding returned to his former business in leather and 
hides, and gradually established a successful trade l)etween Balti- 
more, Philadelphia, and Boston. As he travelled often between 
these cities, by the slow process of j(jurneyiug then in vogue, he 



SIXTH GENERATION. 181 

was told by his old-fogy neiglibors, that they could not affoid to 
spend so much money in travelling, and he used to reply, " I can- 
not afford to stay at home." 

About 1842, he associated with him another partner, when the 
firm became Spalding & Bryant. In addition to their Southern 
business, they engaged extensively in tanning, and soon took the 
lead in the trade. 

In 1847, Mr. Spalding went to Europe for the first time, and was 
the first in his trade to import hides, leather, and skins, to any 
large extent. 

The same year, Mr. Spalding obtained the charter of the Ex- 
change Bank, now the National Exchange Bank of Boston, and he 
has been a director in the institution siu(^e its organization. 

In J 853, with the assistance of several of his early Baltimore 
friends, he started a line of steamships between Boston, Norfolk, 
and Baltimore ; they have proved a success, and the line is yearly 
enlarging. 

Prior to the Eebellion, the company conferred the honor of nam- 
ing one of the steamships the " S. R Spalding." This vessel was a 
transport and flag-ship, doing signal service during the war, and 
her name became as familiar along the coast as a household word. 

Later, he associated with him his two sons, the youngest of 
whom, Frank, died at Vichy, in France, in 1866, whither he had 
gone for the resto)"atiou of his health. He was a young man of 
rare qualities and of many friends, and had just arrived at the age 
to which he had been looking forward as the period when he might 
take a prominence in business life, after a dozen years of patient 
stud}' and observation in mercantile usages. His last words on 
leaving home, were to explain his plans for the future, which he 
was destined to leave uncompleted. 

S. R. Spalding has been one of the Vice-Presidents of the Bos- 
ton Board of Trade for several years. 

He attributes the success which he has enjoyed in business, and 
in its many collateral offices, to the good advice received on leaving 
home, and to the strict economy and perseverance of his j'ounger 
years. By these he htis attained wealth and a high social and 
mercantile position. He m. Ann-Maria Kingsbury, May 23, 1833.

The following notice of Henry Spalding is from the Farmers* 
Cabinet, a newspaper printed at Amherst, N. H., Dec. 4, 1856 : — 

'"'•A Veterayi. — Mr. Henry Spalding, of Francestown, formerly 
of the neighboring town of Lyndeborough, now in his ninety-sixth 
year, rode foiu' miles on the clay of the last presidential election, 
to attend the meeting^ and gave his vote to swell the majority in 
New Hampshire, for ' freedom and Fremont.' So anxious was he 
to vote, that several days previous to the election, he sent to see 
that his name was on the check list, saying he should be there ; 
and he kept his word, although the day was an inclement one. 

" We understand he voted for Washington, and has voted in 
each successive presidential campaign since, with the whig party. 
He is still ' hale and hearty,' never had a sick day in his life, and 
says he ' never had but two serious complaints, lameness and lazi- 
ness ' ; the former, he thinks ' might have been curtwl, had it been 
taken in season, but the latter has defied all prescriptions, and he 
has long since given it up as inciu'able.' 

"Mr, Spalding has ever been a worthy and industrious citizen, 
highly esteemed by all who knew him, for his many virtues. A 
large family of children are settled around him, and among them 
are those whose gi'aj^ hairs tell of more than threescore years ; but 
the patriarch of the family ' still lives ' : one of the few survivors 
of a generation passed away ; one of the very few whose heads are 
whitened by the frosts of nearly a hundred winters. That another 
four years may deal as gently with him as have the four years past, 
is the earnest wish of all who know him, and that he may live to 
see the candidate for whom he voted in 1856, for president, elected 
in 1860, and that he may help elect him, is the hope of those who 
voted with him."

His father, Samuel Spalding, of Merrimack, N. H., was a man 
of considerable propertj'^' for those da^^s. He settled all his sons, 
except Isaac, on. farms near his own. To Isaac he intended to 
give a liberal education, and so put him under the care of Rev. 
Mr Fiske, of Wilton, to be prepared for college. But his circum- 
stances changing, it was decided that Isaac should learn a trade, 
and so he was apprenticed to Mr. Farley, a tanner, of IloUis, N. H. 
He served his time faithfully, and then commenced business with 
Jeremiah Frichard, in New Ipswich, N. H. About 1800, he 
removed to Wilton, N. H., where he continued to reside until his 
death. He was a man of marked ability, who loved his home and 
had no aspirations for riches His house was the house of his 
friends, and they were frequently with him on their way to and 
from the county seat. He had dealings with almost every man in 
the town, but never had a disputed account. His education and 
good judgment made him a congenial companion, and a reliable 
and valuable friend.

218 THE SPALDING MEMORIAL. 

He was many times elected representative of the town, when 
Maine was a part of INIassachusetts, and also for a number of 
years after it became a IState. He was chosen county conunis- 
sioner one or two terms, and for many years Avas one of the 
selectmen and a justice of the peace. 

From an obituar}^ notice, published in the Gospel Banner, at the 
time of his death, we extract the following : — 

" No man ever lived in the town more respected, venerated and 
beloved, and none ever died more generally lamented, than Father 
Spalding. He was prudent and temperate in all his habits, lie 
was honest in principle, pure in mind and motive, and of strict 
integrity. He possessed a mild and amiable disposition, and was 
always seeking to make those around him happy. His habitual 
uprightness, honesty, goodness, and ability secured him the respect 
and confidence of his fellow-citizens, who many times raised him 
to the highest honors and offices within their gift. These offices 
he filled with honor to himself, and M'ith credit and usefulness to 
his constituents."

He was the son of pious parents, and at the age of sixteen made 
a profession of religion. He fitted for college at Phillips Acad- 
eni}', Andover ; entereil Yale, ami after one year joined the Soph- 
omore Class in Harvard, where he graduated in 1840. His theo- 
logical course was at Andover, wiiere he graduated in 1843. He 
was one of the " Iowa Band" of eleven classmates, who, in the 
fall of 1843, were commissioned as Home Missionaries for Iowa. 
He commenced his service at Ottum.va, on the banks of the beau- 
tiful Des Moines. Here he expanded most of his labors, though 
thirty other places occasionally^ heard his voice. He was ordained 
Nov. 5, 1843 ; was home missionary in Wapello Co., Iowa, 1843-45, 
also superintendent of schools ; stated supply at Agency City and 
Ottumwa Iowa, 1815-49 ; went to Ottumwa in 1849, and was in- 
stalled pastor of the Ottumwa church in 1851, and continued his 
relation with that church till 1863, nearl}^ 12 j^ears. Ill health 
compc'.lid him to resign his charge, and seek a more northern clime. 
After his dismission from Ottumwa, he proceeded to Kau Claire, 
in Wisconsin, hoping in that tonic climate to do something more 
for Christ. There, after laboring about nine mouths verv success- 
fully, he found his physical sj'stem was not improving, but 
rather indicating a decline. He therefore returned to his old

wardS Ebenezer3, Edward"-^, Edward^), b. Feb. 24, 1809, at Sum- 
mer Hill, Cayuga Co., N. Y. He has resided in Buffalo, N. Y., 
since 1834. He has been mayor of the city, treasurer of the 
State of New York, a member of the canal board, and six years 
a member of Congress, serving four years on the committee of 
Ways and Means ; and he was the author of the legal tender act, 
passed during the late Rebellion. 

When about twenty years of age, he commenced the study of 
the law in the office of Fitch & Dibble, at Batavia, Genesee County, 
N. Y. He taught school in the winter, and other portions 
of the year, and also acted as recording clerk in the county 
clerk's office, during the first two years of his law studies, in order 
to pay his board and other expenses. In 1832, he entered the 
law office of Hon. Harvey Putnam, at Attica, in the same county, 
where he pursued his law studies until admitted to practice in the 
court of common pleas of Genesee County. 

In 1834, he removed to Buffalo, and continued the study and 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 273 

practice of the law in the office of Potter & Babcock. At the 
^lay term of the supreme court in 183G, he was admitted to prac- 
tice hiw as au attoruey of tlie supreme court of the State of New 
York, and as a solicitor in the court of chancery ; and in 1839, 
as a counsellor of tlie supreme court, and in the court of chan- 
cery. After his admission to practice as an attorney in the 
supreme court, he entered into partnership, first with George R. 
Babcock, and afterwards with Heman B. Potter, and continued to 
practise law until 1844, when the partnership was dissolved. He 
afterwards received into partnership the Hon. John Ganson, with 
whom he continued until 1848. From the time he entered tlie pro- 
fession of the law until he retired from it, he was laborious and 
unremitting in his exertions, and enjoyed an extensive and lucra- 
tive practice. 

In 1836 he was appointed city clerk of Buffalo, and in 1841 was 
elected alderman, and served as chairman of the finance committee. 
In 1847 he was elected mayor of Buffalo, and during his. term many 
important measures were inaugurated. Among these, he took a 
very active part in the adoption by the State of the Erie and Ohio 
basins for enlaroins; the facilities of lake and canal commerce 
at Buffalo ; the organization of the Buffalo Gas Light Company for 
lighting the city ; and the adoption of an extensive system of 
sewerage. In 1848 he served one term as a member of the New 
York legislature, and was chairman of the canal committee. In 
the fall of the same year, he was elected a member of the thirty- 
first Congress, which assembled in December, 1849. In the long 
contest for the speaker, he voted on every balloting for Robert C. 
Winthrop, but owing to some defection among the Whig members, 
Howell Cobb was finally elected. He was placed on the commit- 
tee on foreign relations. He opposed the extension of slavery on 
all occasions ; supported the policy of General Taylor for admit- 
ting California and New Mexico as free States, and opposed the 
fugitive slave law and the compromise measures adopted at the 
very long session in 1850, and which received the approval of Mr. 
Fillmore after the death of General Taylor. 

In 1853 he was elected treasurer of the State of New York, and 
ex officio a member of the canal board, serving two years from 
January 1, 1854. During this term he performed important ser- 
vice as a member of the canal board, in adopting the plans and 
contracting for the work of enlarging the Erie and Oswego canals, 
involving an expenditure of $9,000,000, which was borrowed on 
the credit of the State of New York. 

He opposed the repeal of the Missouri compromise in 1854 ; took 
an active part in organizing the Republican party ; was for several 
years a member of the State central committee ; and in 1860 he 
was an active member of the congressional executive committee in 
conducting the political campaign which resulted in the election of 
Abraham Lincoln for president. 

In 1858 he was elected to the thirty-sixth Congress, and in 1860 
18 



274 THE SPALDING MEMORIAL. 

re-elected to the thirty-seventh Congress, and served four years on 
the important committee of ways and means. He was one of the 
most active members of this committee during a most eventful 
period in the history of the country. As chairman of the sub- 
committee of ways and means, he drafted the national cun-ency 
bank bill, and originated the legal tender act for the issue of treas- 
ury fundable notes to circulate as money, which he introduced in 
the House of Representatives, December 30, 1861. He advocated 
it as a war measure, and opened the debate upon it in an exhaus- 
tive speech, showing the imperative necessity of the measure to 
sustain the army and navy. 

This speech was the first official exposition of the necessity of 
the legal tender notes as a war measure, the constitutionality of 
that measure, and a full statement of the grounds on which it 
should be supported, in order to provide the means for carrying on 
the war. It received very general comment from the press, as well 
as from individuals. The opponents of the measure criticised it 
in severe terms, but the positions he took in the speech, legally and 
otherwise, have never been successfully controverted, and it stands 
to-day as one of the best arguments in favor of legal tender fund- 
able notes, as a war measure, that has ever been presented. 
It had great influence in carrying the bill through Congress. 
Nearly all the most important loan laws for carrjdng on the war 
originated under the supervision of the sub-committee of ways 
and means, of which he was chairman. In a letter to him, dated 
Aug. 3, 1869, Hon. Charles Sumner says : " In all our early finan- 
cial trials, while the war was most menacing, you held a position 
of great trust, giving you opportunity and knowledge. The first 
you used at the time most patriotically, and the second you use 
now (in preparing a financial history of the war) for the instruc- 
tion of the country." The history alluded by Mr. Sumner, as 
having been prepared by Mr. Spalding, was published at Buffalo, 
N. Y., 1869, entitled, "History of the Legal Tender Paper Money 
issued during the Great Rebellion." 

Mr. Spalding has been engaged in banking since 1852. He 
organized the Farmers' and Mechanics' National Bank of Buffalo 
in 1864, and he owns more than three fourths of its stock, and is 
its president. B}^ industry, frugality, and economy he has accu- 
mulated a handsome fortune.

ward3, Benjamin^, Edward^), b. Mar. 20, 1792, in Sharon, Vt. ; d. 
Mar. 15, 1858. 

His father. Deacon Reuben Spalding, was one of the early set- 
tlers in the State, whose life was not more remarkable for his 
toils, privation, and energy as a pioneer in a new country, thffli for 
his unbending integTity and for the best qualities of the old New 
England piu-itanism. James was the third son of twelve children, 
all of whom reached maturity, and were settled in life with fami- 
lies. At the age of seven years he received a small wound in the 
knee-joint, which was succeeded by an acute inflammation and 
suppuration, confining him for more than six months, and attended 
with extreme suffering. During this sickness Dr. Nathan Smith, of 
Hanover, was called ; the knee had been opened at several different 
pointSj but still there was no improvement. This eminent surgeon 
discovered matter deeply seated in the ham, and made a free incis- 
ion, after which the limb healed, leaving the knee partially anchy- 
losed, to recover from which required 3'^ears. 

It was while confined that he entertained the idea of becoming 
a physician and surgeon, probably in consequence of his high esti- 
mation of Dr. Smith, which was retained through life. Hence 
he received from his companions the title of " doctor." and 
retained it, until by his scientific and literary attainments he 
became justl}^ entitled to it. His early advantages were limited, 
having never attended a high school or academy, but still his love 
of study enabled him to obtain a good common school education, 
besides storing his mind with much general knowledge. Alone 
and without instruction, he had acquired that mental disci[>line 
which so highly distinguished him in after life. He commenced 



288 THE SPALDESTG MEMORIAL. 

his medicfil studies <at the age of seventeen, with Dr. Ebor Car- 
penter, of Alstead, N. II., stipuhiting that the expenses of his 
education should be defrayed b}' his practising one year with the 
doctor after he had graduated. He applied himself with uncom- 
mon assiduity to his medical studies, taking at the same time 
private lessons in Greek and Latin. At the age of twenty, he 
graduated at the Dartmouth Medical Institution, having heard the 
lectures from those celebrated teachers, Smith and Perkins. 

It may not be improper to remark, that while a student, his 
opportunities for practice were very extensive. It was then that 
the spoiled /ever prevailed so generally throughout New England. 
Tills epidemic was truly appalling in Alstead and the neighboring 
towns. Dr. S. had an opportunit}' of studjdng the disease under 
all its varied aspects, and brought his discriminating mind to the 
subject with all the candor and close observation of a veteran in 
the science, and arrived at the same conclusions as to its pathol- 
ogy and treatment, as others who had the best opportunities for 
observation, and stood the most eminent in the profession. His 
position was very embarrassing, being called the boy physician, 
having to meet men renowned in the profession, for whom he enter- 
tained an exalted opinion. Modesty would hardly permit him to 
differ from them, yet he had so carefully studied tlie epidemic that 
in most cases his views and treatment were adopted. 

After practising tAVO years in Alstead with Dr. Carpenter, he 
commenced business in Claremont ; but having friends in Montpe- 
lier, tie was induced by their urgent solicitation to remove to that 
place. Though but a boy, he had seen much practice, and per- 
formed many surgical operations, and therefore it required but a 
short time for him to gain general confidence as a physician, and 
more especially as a surgeon, which he retained without abate- 
ment through life. His fixed purpose seemed to be improvement 
in his profession, having never engaged in any other business or 
sought any political preferment. Others may have done more 
under other circumstances ; yet, by his example, integrity, indus- 
try, communications for the medical journals, and dissertations 
before the county and State medical societies, from time to time, 
it may with propriety be said he added sometliing to the general 
stock of knowledge in his profession. As a surgeon. Dr. S. was 
successful above most others. The distinguishing trait of his 
mind was a sound judgment based upon a careful and discrim- 
inating examination of all the evidence which gave to each case 
its peculiar character. Being well informed in the books and 
the general principles of his profession, and having an extensive 
intercourse with his medical brethren, he was well prepared to 
impart to others the results of his extensive experience. With 
propriety it may be said he was an original thinker, as was not 
only manifested in his medical and surgical practice, but in other 
departments of science. 

Few men had occasion to change their opinions, when formed, 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 289 

SO seldom, as Dr. Spalding. Others might come to conclusions 
more readily, but, when his opinions were formed, the evidence 
upon which they were based was in his own mind ; and for this 
reason he was much sought for in consultations. It was a maxim 
with him, that there should be no guess-work in his profession, 
and more especially in surgery. In consultations, due respect was 
paid to the opinions of his professional brethren, but still he would 
suffer his judgment to be influenced only as the evidence in the 
case affected his own mind, never evading responsibility, and 
always governed by his own independent conclusions. 

Dr. S. retained through life the confidence and respect of his 
professional brethren. From his commencement in practice until 
his death, he was much engaged in consultations. Though often 
differing from others in his diagnosis and treatment of disease, 
yet he succeeded in having the confidence of patient and friends 
in the attending physician unabated ; thus discharging his duty to 
his patients without injury to the feelings or reputation of any one. 
It was the settled maxim of his life, that strict integrity was the 
true and only policy which should govern every man who desires 
his own interests or that of others, and therefore he never sought 
to appropriate to himself what justly belonged to them. 

For more than forty years he was an active member of the Ver- 
mont State Medical Society, and through it he labored to advance 
the best interests of the profession he so much loved. He thus 
became acquainted with most of the distinguished physicians of 
the State, among whom he had many personal friends. In 1819 
he was elected secretary, which office he held for over twenty 
years. In 1842 he was appointed chairman of a committee to 
draft a petition to the Legislature for a geological survey of the 
State. He was elected vice-president in 1843, treasm-er in 1844, 
chairman of the committee on the history of the society in 1845. 
He read a thesis in 1846, " On Nature as manifested in Disease 
and Health," which was very highly commended. He was elected 
president in 1846-7-8, and delivered a dissertation on typhus 
fever in 1848, which was published by vote of the Society. He 
was elected corresponding secretary in 1850, and librarian in 1854, 
which office he held until his death. He was also a member of the 
Board of Fellows of the Vermont Academy of Medicine, besides 
holding many offices in the State connected with science, literature, 
temperjince, etc. But few men in the country have seen such an 
amount of disease, and so carefully observed the peculiarities of 
the various epidemics occurring for nearly half a century ; and it 
is to be regretted that so little is left on record of his extensive 
observations and experience, both as a physician and a surgeon. 

Not only as a professional man would we lament our departed 
friend, but as a Christian, father, citizen, and philanthropist would 
we remember him. His life was that of the Good Samaritan, a 
life of toil, prayer, and sympathy for others. His principles were 
deeply rooted in the heart, and his faith manifested by his works.

After leaving college he taught two terms at Appleton Academy, 
New Ipswich, N.H., from which place he went to the Theological 
Seminary at Andover, Ms., where he graduated in 1834. He 
preached several Sabbaths in Marlboro', Ms., six months in Troy, 
N. H., and about four months in Chesterfield, N. H. In 1835, he 
was invited to preach in Cornish, N. H., and at the end of three 
months' ' probation,' he was ordained, Oct. 1 , 1835. He remained 
pastor at Cornish nearly thirty years. He was dismissed Feb. 7, 
1865, to accept a call from the Congregational church at Weathers- 
field Centre, Vt., where he was installed, June 28, 1865. He was 
a man of buoyant feeling, genial manner, and naturally a fine 
mind. He was a kind pastor and a faithful preacher. His theol- 
ogy was thorough and clear, giving prominence to the doctrines of 
sin and atonement, yet he was no polemic. His funeral was held 
at his church in Weathersfield, May 14. His body sleeps in the 
cemetery at Cornish, N. H., among the people of his first charge."

He is of the firm of Browne & Spalding, jewellers, 568 and 570 
Broadway, New York. He was taken by his father at an early age 
to Illinois. Being; bereaved of his mother, he was committed to the 
kind care of a faithful aunt, Mrs. Ann Baker. In 1856 he went to 
Chicago, but, during the disastrous winter of 1857, the firm by whom 
he was emplo3'ed failed, and he returned home. In June, 1858, 
with forty dollars of borrowed money, he started for New York 
City, where he arrived with but twent3^-five cents in his pocket. 
He soon secured a situation, and, unaided pecuniarily, he has grad- 
nall}' worked his way up into an honorable position among the mer- 
chants of that great metropolis. He was for some time a worker 
in the Five Points Mission, and carried the same energy and enter- 
prise into the doing of good. Avhich characterized him in business.

Mr. Spalding removed from New Ipswich, N. H., to Milton, 
N. H.,in 18u0. His father, Capt. Isaac Spalding, was a man of 
good education for those times, but never possessed a property of 
more than two thousand dollars. His son therefore had a very 
limited education, only a few weeks instruction in winter, and was 
very earty thrown upon his own resources. 

In 1809, at the age of thirteen, he went to Amherst, N. H., as 
clerk of Robert Reed, Esq., a leading merchant of that place, with 
whom he continued seven years. 

About 1816, he became a partner of Mr. Reed, and remained in 
that situation ten years, being also for the greater portion of the 
time post-master. 

In 1826, Mr. Spalding removed to Nashua, where he was a 
prominent merchant of the then new and thriving village. After 
twelve years in business, he retired from it to eugage iu railroad 
enterprises, chiefl}" in the Concord Railroad, with whicia he was 
connected for some twent^^-live 3'ears. He was among the first

who saw the importance of a raihoad connection between the lakes 
and tide-water, and gave his aid to those enterprises. 

He has been a man greatly respected by his own townsmen, and 
such was the confidence felt in his impartiality, that in the most 
hented political strifes, he would often be chosen moderator by 
unanimous consent. He was scA'eral times elected selectman, and 
representative of the town in the Legislature ; and after the town 
became a city, he served in the board of aldermen. He was a mem- 
ber of the Constitutional Convention convened in Concord, Nov. 
6,1850; also a member of the Governor's Council in 1866-7 and 
1867-8. He was chosen one of the trustees of the State Asylum 
for the Insane in 1863, and was elected president of that Board in 
1869, succeeding Eev. Charles Burroughs, D. D. He was one of 
the earliest friends of the Concord Railroad, and its first treas- 
urer ; and from its incorporation in 1885 to 1866, he served either 
as treasurer, director, or president. He was for more than twenty- 
five 3 ears president of the Nashua Bank, a State institution which 
wound up its affairs in 1869, having never made a bad debt or lost 
a dollar. 

In the late war of the Rebellion, he was appointed Financial 
Agent of the Government, and assisted in providing the means of 
our country's success. 

He is said to be the richest man in New Hampshire, and has ac- 
quired his property by a course of integrit}^ industry, and economy, 
united with a wise forecast and untiring energy ; m. Lucy Kendall, of
